I have been watching this great mini-series on GMC channel.
It's a really good family show. Just wanted to let everyone know
about it.
It is set in Canada and airs every Thursday night.
Sometimes two episodes run back to back.
Beautiful country!! I wonder if it is filmed in BC?

Here is a bit about it. Apparently our Canadian friends have
had access to the show for 5 years now!


Anyhow it is so good, I record it so I won't miss it



!ATLANTA, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GMC, America's favorite channel for uplifting music and family entertainment, announced today that the recently-acquired family drama Heartland will make its network premiere on Thursday, April 14 with back-to-back episodes at 7 and 8 pm ET (encores at 9 and 10 pm ET and 11 pm and midnight ET, and on Sunday at 11 pm and midnight ET). The hour-long Heartland, a top-rated series in Canada called "a modern-day Little House on the Prairie," was acquired by GMC in a U.S. cable deal with Genesis International Television and Film.

Starring Amber Marshall (The Elizabeth Smart Story), Heartland is the struggle of a debt-ridden family of Rocky Mountain horse ranchers fighting to keep a dream alive against a backdrop of young love, conflict and intrigue. Veteran actor Shaun Johnston (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee); Michelle Morgan (Stargate: Atlantis) and Graham Wardle (In the Land of Women, Yesterday) also star.

"Heartland fits like a glove onto our family-friendly programming lineup," said Leslie Chesloff, executive vice president, programming for GMC. "It tells the type of inspiring and uplifting story that we have made our own in the cable landscape, and the production values are first-rate."

In Canada, the series – now in its fifth season -- leads in households and all key individual female and male demos in its 7 p.m. time slot on Sundays on CBC Television (Canada's national broadcaster).

It's one of the very few shows that has been made with the dime of the Canadian taxpayer, that is actually worth watching week after week.

FH I think it's filmed up near per's. Could be wrong but it's in that area close by.
Yes all the scenes are filmed near by and many around here work for them. Our family along with several other 100 plus year outfits were invited to a wedding on one episode. Imagine our surprise when they were going over the guest list. :shock: Too bad TV is fiction, it would have been a fun event. :wink:

Well, thanks everyone. Now we know where it is located.
And pers country is very beautiful.

I hear ya, Shortgrass. Anti horse slaughter is ever present,
but they never offer any solutions. I met a woman from
California a few years ago and she was totally against horse
slaughter, that the horse owners should be responsible til
the horse got old and died, OR they need horse sanctuaries.
I reminded her of a horse sancturary over by Rapid City that
now has too many horses and they are asking for donations
so they can buy hay to keep the horses alive. And I also
pointed out that it isn't very much fun to see a starving horse
because now people are just dumping unwanted horses.
Our good old horses, we do keep around. It's loyalty thing
with us and there are never very many at one time, 2-3.
More than that and we couldn't afford to keep them all
either. She had NO IDEA how much it costs annually to keep
a horse. She didn't know anything, actually, but she was
sure loud in her OPINIONS. :x

It has been my experience that ignorance and arrogance are never far apart when people who have no clue what they are talking about start telling the people who do things for a living, and have likely done it their entire lives, how it SHOULD be done. Apparently you just read a couple magazine articles and a "study" on the Internet, and *poof* you are an expert. :???:
