Brioux forgot about APTN. What about shows like Blackstone, Hard Rock Medical and Mohawk Girls?
The CMPA, who commissioned the book, make it clear it’s a prototype/work in progress that’s missing shows https://digitalorphans.wordpress.com
Similar info is on eyeoncanada.ca and canadaonscreen.ca which do include APTN.
Okay, thanks for clearing that up.
I just looked at the canadianscreen.ca one. I like that all the French ones are included too. I wish those shows were available to watch with English subtitles on something like Netflix. I enjoy watching all those Brit and foreign shows on Netflix but I think it would be really interesting to watch some of the French Canadian shows. My French isn’t good enough to understand what they are saying so English subtitles would be awesome. It’s this whole other Canadian tv world I never get to see and rarely hear of.
