"Join the Company of Adventurers for a film visit to Canada's fascinating northland. Every summer, people looking for a new and different vacation, take Canadian National's tours to Churchill, on the shores of Hudson Bay. NORTH TO HUDSON BAY takes you along for an armchair view of the fun they have and the sights they see. Follow the historic route of the early fur traders through Northern Manitoba to the barren lands of Hudson Bay, truly one of the last accessible frontiers on the continent. Destination is Churchill, the most northerly deep-sea port in the country, gateway to the world for much of Canada's western wheat. Here historic Fort Prince of Wales, the Eskimos with their ancient crafts, and the booming economy of the North are found side by side. The colour contrasts of Canada's sub-Arctic are also captured."

"An expedition through Canada's rugged Northland to Hudson Bay takes the holiday-maker far off the beaten track. Enterprising travellers can follow the trail of 18th Century explorers in 20th Century comfort, thanks to the summer excursion trains that run from Winnipeg and Regina to Churchill."
