Ballad to Cornwallis

This short documentary offers a satirical history of Halifax, written and sung in honour of the city's founder by balladeer James Bennet. Clad in period costumes, Bennet travels through time against a background of old photographs and paintings, archival and contemporary film footage, until he ultimately finds himself in the midst of the city's present-day building boom.
