Wind At My Back, The Series
Wind at my back is set in the small town of New Bedford, Ontario in the 1930s. Based loosely on the books Never Sleep Three in a Bed and The Night We Stole the Mounties’ Car by Canadian Author, Max Braithwaite, the 65 episodes of Wind at My Back tell the story of the Bailey family through the Great Depression. The series dramatizes the harsh existence and often crushing despair of life in the 1930s with humour and pathos and touches on the themes of family, forgiveness, hardship and love.
Wind at My Back consists of five seasons, each containing thirteen one hour episodes. A two hour Christmas movie, simply titled A Wind at my Back Christmas, wraps up loose ends and serves as the series finale. Several guest stars, such as Gordon Pinsent, make appearances on the program. The high production value, great costumes and beautiful scenery give viewers a glimpse into the 1930’s while being entertained by this timeless and heartwarming family series.
