BC History "Speaks" for Itself

The Nanaimo Historical Society presents:
BC History “Speaks” For Itself

From 1959 to 1966 the late CBC Radio journalist, Imbert Orchard (1909-1991), went on the road throughout British Columbia recording interviews of “old-timers who could tell him the story of the country before they died.”

CBC Radio hired Robert (Lucky) Budd to digitize the Orchard Collection's 2,700 hours of audiotape. Budd released two books based on the interviews, and is a regular guest on CBC Radio North by NW.
