Canada - A People’s History Series 4 (English)
Description & Features+
Canada: A People's History chronicles the human drama that is Canada's journey from past to present. Diaries, letters and archival documents tell the stories of those who shaped this country, in their own words. Using historical re-enactments, dazzling photography and digital special effects, Canada: A People's History presents Canada as you've never seen it: a riveting account of our history, through the eyes of the people who lived it. Our country's story continues in this final installment of videos. Canada comes of age amidst the anguish of World War II and the post-war baby boom that leads to unprecedented growth and prosperity. By the 1960s, Canada has its own flag and is host to Expo '67, but the times are changing with widespread political, social and cultural ferment. Some of Canada's most exciting - and difficult - challenges are explored, including Newfoundland's decision to join Confederation, the birth of Medicare, the 1970 FLQ crisis, and the clash of ideology and strong personalities in the ongoing constitutional debate. The final episode explores the emerging issues of recent times, such as aboriginal treaty negotiations, the environmental movement, and the wide-ranging impact of the computer revolution. The series concludes with a poignant reflection on the country's historical experience and the currents that Canada will have to navigate in the 21st century.
