Land and Sea
Land and Sea is a locally produced Canadian documentary television show broadcast on CBC Television. It has been on the air since 1964 (interrupted only by a short cancellation in the early 1990s, but revived after an outcry from fans),and is the longest-running regional television program on CBC Television. Originally a black-and-white program, it began broadcasting in colour in the late 1960s. There is also a Maritime version of Land and Sea which is broadcast on the full CBC network on Sunday afternoons, and episodes from that version are often alternated with Newfoundland-based episodes.
There have been several hosts of Land and Sea over the years. Dave Quinton was one of the TV series' original hosts. Other hosts with Quinton included Rab Carnell, Hal Andrews, Des Brown, Mike Martin, Herb Davis, and Paul Harrington. Bill Kelly joined the show in 1983 and stayed until he retired in 1993. The current host is Pauline Thornhill. Some episodes are narrated by Christopher Richardson or broadcaster Tom Murphy.
