Though he was just three years old when his “Papa” died, Joshua Jamieson grew up familiar with his grandfather, Don Jamieson. He knew he was a well-known broadcaster and politician and had heard vague stories about him meeting the queen, but was never quite clear on some of the tinier details — like, for example, that the declaration of Canada’s 200-mile fishing limit had been signed on the kitchen table on which he had been eating dinner his entire life. … more

  1. I recently spoke on behalf of my family and in particular my father in an acceptance speech for the re-naming of the Innovation Center at Memorial, the building in which you launched your documentary. My Dad also recieved a business hall of fame and Order of NL awards this year. Few know that as a high school student in downtown toronto my father was selected to go on a national tour and was also appointed the spokesperson for the group on their cross canada journey. Thus he came here to “young” newfoundland in 1953 and was interviewed by Don Jamieson. It was recorded and we became aware of it not very long ago. Perhaps in an ironic twist, DJ asked young Angus if he thought he may return to Newfoundland some time, and he pondered it for a while and said he thought he would. . . I wonder if it influenced his decision to come here as a young Dean of engineering in 1968 . . .?

    • Thanks for the interest Wayne! NTV will be re-airing the film twice a year from now until 2013 and we will be releasing a DVD, hopefully before Christmas 2011!
