Scope and content

The series consists of individual radio documentaries by Imbert Orchard that did not form part of his three major series (as documented in MS-3269). They includs programs that aired regionally on series such as "B.C. Folio", "Pacific Mosaic" and "Spotlight on B.C.", or on national series such as "Between Ourselves", "The Bush and the Salon", "CBC Midweek" or "Saturday Night". The series includes some of Orchard's earliest documentaries, notably "Pioneer People of the North" (1961-62), "The Fort and the City" (1962), and the award-winning "River of the Clouds" (1965). Other significant programs include "The Road back" (1965), "A Journey of Two Summer Moons" (1972), "The Riverboys and the Fur Traders" (1972), "The Cormonant Bluffs" (197-), and "The Great West Road" (1977). In some instances, program production elements have been preserved, in order to illustrate Orchard's working methods.
