Out of the land of Lilliput : a short history of the amazingly rapid development of British Columbia

Documentary. One of three or four films produced or sponsored by Home Oil Distributors with the cooperation of the Provincial Archives, this film presumably traced the history of B.C. through photographs, maps and other archival materials. The title is an allusion to Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", in which the land of "Brobdingnag" is located on the northwest coast of North America (i.e., B.C.). This fragment of the film includes a few shots taken inside the Provincial Archives. Other shots show an early edition of "Gulliver's Travels" and various early maps of the B.C. coast.
