Its All A Blizzard
23 May 2006 | by animal_8_5See all my reviews

I have very few memories of this show, other than I used to catch it on Saturday, or Sunday mornings on CBC-TV back in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This was a Canadian production depicting the rough and tumble fur-trading days of what would one day become Canada, through the eyes of the Hudson's Bay Company. Stories of aboriginals, English, French and Metis trappers, voyageurs and coureurs du bois, as well as those in the employ of the legendary "company."

The series, featuring well-known British actor John Clark and San Francisco's own Barry Nelson (best known as the first theatrical incarnation of James Bond 007 in the 1954 "Climax" TV play, "Casino Royale") romping through the snow, was short-lived in its first run, but lived on in reruns for a long time on Canada's CBC network, where it had its best days. A host of Canadian actors filled out the rest of the cast, with the harsh, but gorgeous Canadian wilderness being the biggest star of the series.

The Hudson's Bay Company had little, or nothing to do with the production of the series and the stodgy old brand went global with Ebay going online in the late 90s. An American investor named Jerry Zucker bought HBC in a deal worth more than $1 billion in 2006, adding more to its rich and long history.
