The story of Britain's evacuee children in Canada.

On their arrival in Canada they are thrilled by the brightly-lit cities, the powerful Canadian trains, the hot dogs and the ice cream.

Notre héritage( Visual )

3 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Loi sur le rétablissement agricole des Prairies a eu pour effet de faire renaître l'espérance chez les cultivateurs des zones sèches de l'Ouest. Des années de sécheresse intense, jointes à un affaissement désastreux des prix, ont contraint un grand nombre de cultivateurs à quitter leur foyer pour chercher du travail ailleurs. Mais la plupart d'entre eux, se refusant à abandonner le sol défriché par leurs bras, bien qu'ils n'eussent pas les ressources nécessaires à un recommencement, sont vaillamment restés à leur poste. S'inspirant des découvertes faites par les spécialistes dans les différentes fermes et stations expérimentales, les fonctionnaires chargés d'appliquer la loi sur le rétablissement agricole des Prairies ont rendu à ces cultivateurs le moral et la confiance en l'avenir. La conservation de l'humidité, de nouvelles méthodes agricoles et l'affectation des terres arides à d'autres emplois ont contribué à remettre plusieurs fermes abandonnées sur un pied de production

The scientific approach, both to problems of military strategy and to new weapons, is all-important. The film shows some of the work done by Canadian scientists to make these weapons as effective as possible."--National Film Board of Canada description

Fresh from the deep( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is a reproduction of a 1922 film made by the Canadian government about halibut fishing on the B.C. coast. "This film shows the fishing and packing of halibut in British Columbia. An animated map shows the fishing grounds along the coast of British Columbia and Alaska. In southern waters, halibut fishing is done by small vessels that cast lines about four miles long. Fishermen are shown preparing and casting these lines and then hauling in the catch. Once caught, the fish are cleaned and packed in ice in the ship's hold. In northern waters, the fishing is done by small, independently operated boats. The fishermen on these boats haul in their catch by hand and are then picked up by a "mother ship." The large plants at Prince Rupert process and pack the halibut, for distribution to the rest of the continent. Workers are shown lifting the halibut out of a ship's hold, packing the fish into crates with ice and then loading it into a railroad refrigerator car. The "Fish Express" carries the daily supply of halibut to consumers in Eastern Canada and the United States. This film is from the "Seeing Canada" series, which was produced by Bernard E. Norrish beginning in February 1919. The "Seeing Canada" series was the first major series of films about Canada. The films were successful in showcasing Canada to an international audience and were critically acclaimed for their technical quality."--from Peter Morris' "Embattled Shadows: A History of Canadian Cinema, 1895-1939."
