Songs and Stories of Canada
This CD-ROM contains 16 half-hour shows (originally CBC radio) made for schools broadcasts (Grades 5-9)in Western Canada in c. 1980. Each thematic show contains dramatic presentations on the theme, five or six songs, sound effects, etc. Accompanying the shows is a 120 pp Guide Book in .pdf format containing some 50 songs from the series. Some of the songs were re-mastered and are on the three Our Singing Tradition CDs.
Moving West – early exploration of the west during the fur trade, building the CPR and subsequent settlement of the Prairies.
Saltchuck and Asphalt – transportation past and present, mainly in British Columbia — truckdriving, freight wagons and teams of horses on the Cariboo Road, railways and tugboats.
The Homesteaders – lives of settlers on the prairies in the early years of the twentieth century—living in sod homes, fighting off mosquitoes, grasshoppers, gophers, duststorms, hailstorms, drought and loneliness.
The Parish Hall Dance – gives examples of the role of folk music – particularly singing – in social situations from Newfoundland to British Columbia.
The Immigrants – a collection of immigrant songs in English and French. The groups covered are the Scottish (Cape Breton), French (Quebec), British (British Columbia) and Irish.
Fishing East and West – fishing for cod off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, whaling off Greenland and fishing for salmon and halibut off the BC coast.

Songs of the Deep Sea Sailors – the lives of sailors who worked on the tall sailing ships of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Folk Instruments – some of the instruments used in traditional Canadian folk music over the past 150 years—especially the button accordion, the fiddle and the concertina.
The Kangaroos of Nova Scotia – how songs are passed on and the changes they undergo in the process.
The Atlantic Provinces – draws together in song common themes in the Atlantic provinces—lumbering, fishing, Acadian songs in French and songs from the descendants of Scottish immigrants in Nova Scotia.
