Episode 1 - Nathalia Petrovna Buchan - June 28th and July 1st

NataliaPic.JPGThe Bolshevik Revolution? Been there. Japanese prisoner of war camp? Done that. The Viet Nam war? Nathalia Petrovna Buchan helped start it. Tall tales, you say? Think again.
Nathalia passed away not so long ago in Victoria, having reached the century mark in her remarkable life. But before she came to the relative quiet of Canada, Nathalia was in Asia, living through many of the dramatic events that shaped the 20th century. Nathalia was no adventurer though. All she ever wanted was a stable and comfortable family life. Instead, bullets and bombs constantly followed her, testing her courage and her religious faith.

The documentary on Nathalia Petrovna Buchan was by Michael Tymchuk in Victoria.
