Canada: Its Land, Resources & Economy begins with a view of the country from outer space. The narrator explains that Canada is an immense country - the second largest in the world. Perhaps, the narrator continues, its size can be appreciated only from space. But the beauty and diversity of its lands can be appreciated best at ground level. After this brief beginning, Canada's seven regions are introduced, and then explained in more detail. The seven regions covered are the Appalachian Highlands, the St. Lawrence Lowlands, the Hudson Bay Lowlands, the Canadian Shield, the Arctic Islands, the Interior Plains and the Mountain West or "Cordillera." The major geographic features of each are shown, and the program then discusses Canada's key natural resources - rich soil, water, forests, oil and natural gas, and other mineral resources. Finally, the program shows the main economic components - various service industries, manufacturing and agriculture.
