CBC Television's Land & Sea has been bringing you stories about the people and places of Newfoundland and Labrador since Now, in association with Downhome Inc, CBC is pleased to offer this special series on DVD.
Much of the distinct heritage that has characterized Newfoundland for so many years has changed drastically. However, the uniqueness of outports, nurtured by centuries of isolation, will always remain. Outport is a snapshot in time between the years 1969–1985, vividly capturing the life of one of these communities. Through dramatic photographs and personal stories told by the people themselves, this book takes a look back at a lifestyle that has changed forever.
