This series explores the features that define Canada: the most expansive coastline in the world and the world's longest undefended border. It's a never-before-seen view of Canada, rising up and bearing witness to our nation's diversity and beauty. The meeting place of the ocean and land is birthplace of this country's history and the frontline of climate change. Our borders separate us from our neighbours, but also reveal how closely intertwined our histories and futures are. Shot in breathtaking HD, Canada: Over the Edge will capture Canada's vast geographical and cultural panorama. It is a testament to our history and a time capsule for our future. 


Season 1: Watch Atlantic Canada unfold!

The first 13-episode cycle focuses on the rugged beauty and history of Canada's Atlantic Provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. Hidden coves in Nova Scotia once sheltered pirates, privateers and bootleggers. The tiny border towns of New Brunswick were the frontlines of an undeclared war between Canada and the USA. Cape Breton's highlands rise up calling to Celts of all nations on the Eastern shore. PEI's Confederation Bridge is a 13-kilometer marvel of engineering. The Bay of Fundy's record-high tides could hold the future of alternative energy. And the Grand Banks of Newfoundland are the richest fishing grounds in the world - but for how long? What will these landscapes look like in 20 or 50 years? How will climate change, international politics, migration and human greed affect them? 

13 DVDs, 52 minutes each.
