DVD - One Man’s Dream, the History of the Malahat Highway
A fascinating story of Major James McFarlane who singlehandedly surveyed the route and whose persistence got the road built. What makes the story so interesting is Major McFarlane was a real character. He was basically a drunken Irishman whose friends and family thought was crazy for attempting something everyone said was impossible. The film is a blend of actual archive material along with re-enactments by dozens of actors. It features many island locations and takes the viewer from the early 1900s to the present.
Produced by DVMedia and the Mill Bay/Malahat Historical Society
