TFO, a French-language educational channel based in Ontario, has aired a six-part series about Samuel de Champlain, the founder of Quebec.
The series is based on the book Champlain’s Dream, a sweeping biography of the great explorer by Pulitzer-prize-winning American author David Hackett Fischer.
The French-language video series stars Quebec actor Maxime Le Flaguais as Champlain.
Producers aim to air the series on English TV later in 2015.
The entire series can be viewed, in French only, by requesting a link through this website.
Also on the site are a variety of trailers, short educational videos, and games available in French and English.
