Know a weird BC history story? Tell us about it


Did you watch all 10 episodes of the first season of our history show, BC Was Awesome? We released them on our Facebook Page in September and they’re also available on TELUS Optik.

If you haven’t seen them you can watch them all right here. If you have, and you enjoyed them, I have great news: we got renewed for a second season!


We’re currently in the research phase and we’ve locked into 8 weird stories from British Columbia’s history… but we’ve got a couple openings for subjects. While our team has been poring over books and the internet the best types of stories we’ve found in the past have come to us from people recalling them in person. Some of the best stories haven’t been told extensively in books but are hiding in plain view, in the minds of people who have heard them.

So we ask: do YOU have know of a weird BC history story you think we should chase? Specifically, north of Kamloops? Maybe you only know a little bit about it, or maybe you’re an expert. Whatever the case, let us know! Email our lead researcher/producer Greg Crompton at Or leave a response to this Facebook post, and we’ll follow up.

And watch for season 2 launching in 2017!
