Product Description

From the simple block of wood that served as a puck at the first organized game of ice hockey, played in Montreal in 1875, to the fascinating story of the pioneering women’s professional league that sold out arenas during the Great War, to the gold-medal glory of the 2002 Olympic Games, Hockey: A People’s History is an epic television series that brings alive the roots of a game that has shaped a nation. Produced by CBC Television and Société Radio-Canada in 2006, Hockey: A People’s History traces the history of the game over ten episodes, in both English and French.

Featuring stunning re-enactments, rarely-seen footage, and the words of the pioneers of the game, the series reveals a tale of hockey’s inventors, innovators and empire builders. More than just the story of a sport, it is a story of a people, and it is a unique lens through which one can view Canada’s social history – the coming of age of a nation, and the remarkable journey of a sport that has woven itself into our cultural language and fabric. Shot entirely in high definition and produced in the tradition of journalistic excellence that is the hallmark of CBC/Radio-Canada, Hockey: A People’s History is a significant television event that stands as the definitive documentary of record, for today’s audiences as well as future generations.

I am a senior lady and I so enjoyed watching this series and couldn't wait for the next episode. So many interesting facts and figures. Imagine a play by play in Morse code!! It was so entertaining and informative that I bought the series as a Christmas gift for my son in law as he is a hockey buff. He and I have shared many a bottle of wine watching playoff games together and I sure hope he enjoys this series as much as I did. Paul Gross was absolutely second to none in his narration. He spoke with such fervor, like he was there himself from the very beginning.

I bought this series for my hockey-loving husband, and we just finished watching the first DVD in the series yesterday. We both absolutely loved it! The history of hockey is part of the history of Canada--it's informative, intriguing, and entertaining. Well worth the time!

Hockey freaks rejoice. Sept. 5 2013

This set covers it very well. Old time film, all the greats get credited in a proper light. Some real old fashioned footage. The history of hockey covers more than the North American players as well and the summit series. Well done documentary. Could of been longer. But much longer should it go?
