Quirky or strange stories wanted for TV series

6 May 2006

Do you know a quirky, mysterious or just plain weird local story that most likely can’t be found online and didn’t make national headlines? Are you devoted to solving the mystery surrounding a strange event? Do you have personal photographs, film, documents or diaries about a weird story? If so, your story could possibly be featured on a fun new TV series called History Bluffs - a show that investigates the fascinating, the strange and the quirky history, happenings, half-realities and hoaxes that make up the fabric of our great country.

History Bluffs will comprise ten 30-minute episodes produced by Big Red Barn Entertainment for CTV Travel Channel and Discovery HD Theatre. The series will star two quirky hosts, Todd Macfie and Frank Wolf, on their quest to uncover the myths and mysteries of Canadian history. History Bluffs follows their dogged pursuit of truth as they scour the country in search of the bizarre, the unexplained, and the really strange stories. This is the history you never read about in textbooks. History Bluffs will air on CTV Travel Channel in September of 2006 and Discovery HD Theatre in January 2007. CTV Travel and Discovery HD Theatre are digital specialty channels of CTV Inc., Canada's #1 broadcast communications company.

Some guidelines:

The story must be based in a physical location that we can travel to and show the audience. For example: ‘This is where the event happened’, ‘this house ... this hallway ...’, ‘this underground tunnel ...’

If there is a townsperson or an engaging and quirky someone who knows the story well and has perhaps devoted much of their time to discovering what happened and can show us around that would be ideal.

So if you have a great story, please contact:
