“Hinterland Who’s Who”

Remember Hinterland Who’s Who?  It was a long-running series of short public information spots about wildlife, produced by the Canadian Wildlife Service and the National Film Board, that ran on television from the 1960s on.  This YouTube video highlights an early black & white installment (from 1963), and shows the evolution of the series’ style.  The introductory loon call and flute music are probably embedded in the mind of anyone who grew up with 1960s TV in Canada.
