    Wonderful film. Subtle yet engaging story telling and a valuable Canadian cultural artifact.

    I always wondered who the stars of the programs are.

    Well done. Enjoyed every minute of it. Especially how the boy copied everything the adults would do. Very unique and hence valuable documentary.
