Aired Sunday afternoons from January 4 to February 22, 1970.
This was a series of eight shows about Canada’s natural resources and their importance to the country’s economic life. It was hosted by John Kettle and produced by Julian Smither.
Ironically, the series debuted the same Sunday afternoon as This Land of Ours started its new season. The latter program featured a report on the potential destruction of Canada’s parklands. Landmark was more interested in the political consequences of foreign investment in Canadian resources, which remains a concern to Canada.
Consultants on this series included Robert Fowler, President of the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association, Larry Dack of the Financial Post, Jim Hilborn of Corpus Communications and Charles Law of Research and Publishing Services.
The programs were shot in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., and produced by Lloyd Brydon, Doug Lower and Eric McLeery in Toronto, Jack Zolov in Montreal, and Mike Poole in Vancouver. George Salverson was head writer and Doug Wilkinson was executive producer of the series.
