Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hosted by the ineluctable Canadian actor Gordon Pinsent, this six-part documentary series certainly delivered on the promise of its title. Each 60-minute episode concentrated on a different and fascinating aspect of Canadian culture, education, politics, media, and performing arts. Innumerable celebrities, creative persons, pedants, and decision-makers appeared to offer their unique perspectives. Produced by a veritable honor roll of top Canadian documentary filmmakers, The Great Canadian Culture Hunt was seen from March 10 to April 14, 1976.
