Scope and content

The series consists of recordings of the radio programs in Orchard's three major series of B.C. history documentaries: "Living Memory" (four series, 1961-1964), "From the Mountains to the Sea" (one series, 1967)," and People in Landscape" (four series, 1968-1972). (There is also a group of special programs that aired as part of "People in Landscape," but outside the historical narrative of the current series.) Produced at CBC Vancouver, these programs were mainly based on Orchard's tape-recorded oral history interviews with B.C. pioneers (found in MS-3268)
