British Columbia: An Untold History (Series 4 Parts)

British Columbia: An Untold History is an immersive, insightful and dramatic four-part documentary series centred on retelling the history of the place referred to as "British Columbia." The project, commissioned by Knowledge Network, is driven by a pluralistic and multi-narrative approach that highlights the history, the people, the families, the rebels and the dreamers that shaped this province.

The series offers an inclusive and diverse perspective as told through the voices of the people who lived it and those who have studied it: authors, historians, elders, families, and descendants of historical figures. British Columbia's dramatic history is revealed through interviews, vivid archival photography, film artifacts and captivating footage of the B.C. landscape.

Titles included in British Columbia: An Untold History: 

  • Change + Resistance:  Uncovers the Indigenous resistance to oppression in British Columbia. First Nations persevered through years of brutality and criminalization -- remembering this history is an act of refusal to be erased.
  • Labour + Persistence:  Explores the history of labour and equality in British Columbia. First Nations, immigrants, and women fought overseas for Canada in both World Wars, and then kept fighting for equal rights at home.
  • Migration + Resilience:  Reveals the immigrant narratives of resilience that define British Columbia. Asian migrants, the Doukhobors, and American war resisters catalyzed social movements that still continue today.
  • Nature + Co-Existence:  Examines how the history of British Columbia is inseparably fused with the history of natural resources. First Nations have worked with non-Indigenous environmentalists to co-exist and protect the land.
