The Pioneers

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

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.
