Bring the Beachcombers back to the CBC!
Welcome to our petition to urge the CBC bring back the Beachcombers. The Beachcombers first aired in October, 1972, and is the longest running drama series in Canadian television history (19 seasons). The series exposed Canada's multiculturalism, beautiful landscape and quirky Canadian characters to millions of viewers from all over the world. Other than the episodes that aired on specialty channels in Canada, the rest haven't aired since 1984, and we feel it's time to see them again on the CBC.
We believe the CBC should replace the scheduled American afternoon programming with this classic series, a series that can be watched by the whole family. Alternatively, the CBC should make an effort to release the series on DVD.
Bring back a Canadian Classic. Bring back the Beachcombers!
