Episodes 1 - 5 (DVD Boxed Set)
These episodes range from ancient history and the stories passed down through native oral tradition to the first electric encounters between natives and Europeans, and from the wrenching battles that engulf the continent to the mass migration of Loyalists and the War of 1812. The dramatic stories of Canada's beginnings unfold on a spectacular, forbidding landscape.
Warning: Scenes unsuitable for young children in Episode 1 only with topics related to First Nations.
As "docudramas" this series is excellently produced. Real-life drama is interspersed with narration and character monologues. All monologues are taken from source documents: writings, letters and diaries. Each 2-hour episode is broken into numerous 15-20 minute segments. DVDs work well with Courage and Conquest: Discovering Canadian History when corresponding segments are viewed following the reading and study. Costumes, sets, and characters are extremely authentic. This series is highly recommended!
