RE: [War Of 1812] Great Canadian Lakes documentary
- I believe it was produced in 04 by Good Earth Productions. That it was
on yesterday is annoying to no end as Ive been trying to nab it to tape
and when it was last on in January, the local cable company's audio was
supremely mangled. When I contacted The History Networks PR department,
it took forever for them to reply saying they didnt know when it would
air again. Eeesh!!!
FWIW, if anyones looking for a DVD version, theyre being handled by

several years old. Can someone tell me when it was filmed?
PS: I thought the narrator's description of Doug was rather amusing.
He calls him "an American with a French-Canadian last name, wearing a
