Series

The Pioneers

A documentary series portraying pioneers who have cultivated our lands and our country.

1 episodes

Our elders are the last living witnesses of a time when we had a daily relationship with nature. Some have cleared lands, others have colonized new territories; all had to exert ingenuity to survive hostile environments. BESIDE gives the stage to these pioneers whose stories are both honouring our collective heritage and instilling positive solutions for the future.
