Archival Special...Their New Found Land

It's another look at Land and Sea from years gone by.

This time, we take you back to 1984, when Dave Quinton and a Land and Sea crew followed Otto Tucker on one very sentimental journey.

Otto is originally from Winterton, Trinity Bay.  From the time he was a small boy, he was fascinated with the faded names on the old cemetary headstones.  Names from "the old country", west country England. The place where so many of our ancestors came from.

Otto vowed he would one day visit this land...this place across an ocean, with surnames and faces and expressions so similar to ours in Newfoundland. In '84 Otto made that journey. And found out much about who we are, and where we came from.
