The Westland television series was produced and hosted from 1984 to 2007 by Mike Halleran and broadcast on the Knowledge Network in British Columbia. The content of the show covers a broad range of environmental issues of importance to the province as well as more generally including forestry practices, wildlife conservation and human impact on the environment. Both the broadcast tapes (in varying forms of video) and the raw production footage was donated to the UBC Library in 2011. We have now made the broadcast footage available in our digital collections portal. This still is from an episode called “Back from the Brink: The efforts to save Vancouver Island Marmots from extinction.” Enjoy!
