This docudrama explores the life and legacy of one of Canada's most important reformers: Tommy Douglas (Michael Therriault). A shrewd politician and a colorful personality, Douglas was a social crusader who helped bring universal healthcare to his country. Beginning in 1930 and ending in 1961, this two-part CBC miniseries follows Douglas's remarkable odyssey. When it first aired in 2006, it was greeted controversy due to the artistic license taken in the depiction of Saskatchewan premier Jimmy Gardiner. Robert Silva, Rovi
