The BUDD Cars 

Conservation biologist Esme Batten studies and photographs the Saugeen/Bruce Peninsula’s flora and fauna, working to preserve this unique landscape that includes ancient cedars, rare lichen, caves, and two-thirds of all orchid species found in Ontario.


Chapleau Game Preserve 

Stretching like a finger nearly 100 km into Lake Huron, the Saugeen/Bruce Peninsula is an important resting place for migratory birds.  Follow the work of Dr. Stéphane Menu at the bird observatory on the peninsula’s northern tip. 

Director's Cut - The Heli Shot

Stretching from Niagara to Tobermory, the 900 km Bruce Trail is Canada’s oldest and longest marked footpath.  It takes over 1,400 volunteers, armed with marking paint, garbage bags and saws to maintain the trail. 


A lot of work goes into making documentaries. Check back once a week for a new behind the scenes video.
