Bluenose: The Legend Lives
Bluenose: The Legend Lives is a unique and entertaining documentary about Nova
Scotia’s most iconic vessel. With the launch of the beautifully rebuilt Bluenose
II, the moment is right to re-tell the story of a schooner that captured the
world’s attention almost 100 years ago. The show is a mix of historical context,
compelling story-telling, spectacular visuals and musical gems by Bruce Guthro,
Joel and Bill Plaskett, Old Man Luedecke, Fiona MacGillivray, Shannon Quinn, and
The Eastern Belles. Program aired on CBC Television August 27 2015, and is an
official selection at the 2017 Lunenburg Documentary Festival. Produced by
Saltwind Productions (Brookes Diamond Productions).

Tale Productions, editor is Warren Jeffries (Bounty: Into The Hurricane, Forever
