The show is a mix of historical context, compelling story-telling, spectacular visuals and musical gems by Bruce Guthro, Joel and Bill Plaskett, Old Man Luedecke, Fiona MacGillivray, Shannon Quinn, and The Eastern Belles. Program aired on CBC Television August 27 2015, and is an official selection at the 2017 Lunenburg Documentary Festival. Produced by Saltwind Productions (Brookes Diamond Productions).
