An award winning 2 hour documentary drama!
Resplendent in their majestic red serge, the men are unprepared for what awaits them.
1874… the North-West Mounted Police are Canada’s only hope to tame the wild frontier at the heart of its dream of nationhood. Their toughest opponents were not just American outlaws and whiskey traders… but the resistance of the land itself. “The Great March” recreates this spectacular adventure, depicting the perils and hardships faced by the newly minted “Mounties”. Resplendent in their majestic red serge, the men are unprepared for what awaits them. They confront terrifying prairie storms, starvation, thirst, dysentery, malaria, death of their horses, and the constant pervasive fear of battles with the whiskey traders and the prairies Indians. Based upon original diaries, journals and illustrations recorded by members of the expeditionary force of 1874.
