Visions of Canada

Episode 1 of 1

Visions hits the highlights of a country that spans six time zones, showcasing Canada's diverse natural beauty and vibrant cities using the series' pledge-tested format of stunning high definition aerial and ground footage paired with regional music and informative narration that gives rich historical context to dramatic land and seascapes. On the ground, you can almost feel the cobblestones beneath your feet on the charming streets of Quebec City and the pulse of Toronto's modern metropolis and Montreal's cosmopolitan flair. In the air, the helicopter-mounted camera soars over the sea of grass that is the vast prairie lands, takes us high into the Rockies where only the very adventurous climb, provides the quickest route to the top of the 621-foot Calgary Tower, teases the tranquil turquoise waters of Lake Louise among an abundance of pristine mirrored lakes nearly close enough to take a dip, and joins the ancient spirits above the Pacific Rim region to see the world as it appears nowhere else. And you'd have to be in a barrel to get closer views of Niagara Falls. From wine country to the Hockey Hall of Fame, from the abstract beauty of the 'earth paintings' formed by low tide on the Bay of Fundy to the height of commerce along the St. Lawrence River, Visions of Canada reveals a country of contrasts that form a cultural and geographic mosaic. French, English, Irish, and Scottish roots meet Vancouver's flourishing Chinatown. Palm trees and snow-capped mountains share a common land mass. East meets west, old meets new, tradition engages innovation, and the proud past meets an exciting, unknown future. Locations include: Halifax, the Bay of Fundy, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, St. Lawrence River, Quebec City, Montreal, the Great Lakes, Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Calgary, Lake Louise, the Canadian Rockies, Vancouver, and Victoria.
