The Newcomers March 19, 1978

Set in what is now Quebec, this story is about Nicholas de Lugny (played by Michel Coté), a soldier bearing the hardships of a new land and learning how to live as a pioneer in New France. The Newcomers was a series of seven hour-long Canadian television specials that aired from 1977 to 1980 on CBC Television. These dramas explored the theme of Canada as a nation built by immigrants, spanning from the era before Canada was founded until modern times. The series was sponsored by Imperial Oil to mark the company's 100th anniversary in 1980. The series was produced by Nielsen-Ferns.[1] McClelland and Stewart published a related book in 1979.[2]
