On Saturday, October 5th, at 9:00 pm, tune into TVO and watch as Ontario Visual Heritage brings to life a story that has been two hundred years in the making.
Narrated by R.H. Thomson, A Desert Between Us &Them: Raiders, Traitors, and Refugees in the War of 1812, is a 120 minute cinematic documentary that explores the stories that make the War of 1812 a”modern war” by stepping back in time to experience the conflict through the eyes of the people of Southwestern Ontario, who spent several years living in a War Zone.
