An extraordinary series documenting the history of Canada from when mankind first set foot on North America to the present day.

Produced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and airing concurrently on both the main CBC television network and the Radio-Canada television network as Canada: une histoire populaire (and later repeated on Newsworld and RDI).

In addition to the 32 hour documentary series there is also a two volume book, DVD and video sets, soundtrack CD and two mulitmedia websites www.cbc.ca/history (English) and radio-canada.ca/histoire/ (French).

The documentary style is similar to the Ken Burns films using historical reenactmants, photographs, voice-overs and, in episodes set in the 20th century, film footage and commentary from people who were witness to the actual events.
