This Land (Series) (1965)

The 1965 CBC program called This Land was a half-hour travel documentary presented on weekday afternoons. The fifteen programs included productions by the National Film Board, and started with Trans Canada Journey, narrated by Christopher Plummer, which surveyed the country by air from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island. Among the other films were My Island Home, on Prince Edward Island; The Water Dwellers, on the lumber workers of Simoon Sound, British Columbia; Northwest Neighbours, on the people of Yellowknife; and My Financial Career, the animated adaptation of Stephen Leacock's story.

This series should not be confused with This Land of Ours, which started in 1966 and was retitled This Land starting in 1970.
