UBC Library and Columbia Basin Trust logos
 
A fascinating collection of programs that focuses on a range of environmental issues can now be viewed by users around the world.
 
UBC Library recently digitized the Westland series television programs that form part of Halleran Collection, one of the largest private family film collections in Canada. It is is being housed and preserved by the Library thanks to a generous donation from the Halleran Family and the support of community partners including Columbia Basin Trust.
 
The collection is is an insightful document of rural B.C. that consists of nature-oriented programs produced in British Columbia over recent decades. The Westland series was originally broadcast by the Knowledge Network from 1984 to 2007, and examined a broad range of issues associated with forestry, fresh water fishing, endangered species and ecosystem restoration.
 
UBC Library has digitized 195 programs that were broadcast as part of the Westland series – to view the results, please visit UBC Library Digital Collections.
 
 For more on the Halleran film donation, which also includes about 2,000 videotapes, please visit the February 2012 announcement.

Al, Beautiful Razor portrait 2010

Photo credit Stephan Hoglund

beatifulrazor-coverfrontjpg1

In this fluid collection we enter a galactic expanse where absence, distance and fire repel and attract love-bodies in a winged-whirl of magnetic mad flight. Loss, emptiness, space, desire, blood, memory; all devour themselves in the combustions of love without self. The you/other may be interchangeable, never static or frozen or attainable. In these sharp-beaked bird-worlds there is “no going back” – at best, bodies meet only “flame to flame,” mutable and razor-like in feathery, impermanent forms. I find Hunter’s new work a rare melding of Blues, Kabbalah, and personal transcendence– a piercing, hard-won angelic love mantra. A blazing tour de force!
- Juan Felipe Herrera, California Poet Laureate

What lies here are the vagaries of a heart wounded, shattered, and redeemed by love. Such generosity of spirit deserves acclaim. A bravura work.
- Richard Wagamese, author of Indian Horse
