Between ourselves : The riverboys and the fur traders : [parts 1 & 2]

SUMMARY: "Between Ourselves" was a weekly series of hour-long radio programs that presented Canada to Canadians. It featured aspects of Canadian life in docudramas, plays, music, and interviews, originating fr;om different regions of Canada. The series ran from 1966 to 1979. "The Riverboys and the Fur Traders", presented in two parts, is the story of a river journey made in 1971 by the First Fort George Sco;ut Troop. The scouts were retracing the route followed by Simon Fraser in 1806, and (in part) by Alexander Mackenzie in 1793 -- from McLeod Lake to the Fraser via the Parsnip, Pack and McGregor Rivers;. The program combines excerpts from the journals of Mackenzie and Fraser with recordings made by Imbert Orchard during the course of the scouts' journey. The program also juxtaposes sounds from a var;iety of sources. Roy Brinson is heard as the voice of Simon Fraser, and Robert Clothier as Alexander Mackenzie.;
