In the Media
TV, Video and the Internet
We have been featured on numerous Canadian and International TV shows over the years. Everything from news interest stories, to science shows, to specialty shows on adventure trips, to shows on unique homes.
We've hosted film crews from CBC news, Radio Canada (French CBC TV), CHEK 6 news, Norwegian TV, Dutch TV, Korean TV, and Tourism BC. They included us in a commercial for BC's 150th anniversary.
We have also been featured on: Beyond Tomorrow (Australian TV), Extreme Homes, Amazing Vacation Homes, CTV’s Daily Planet and CTV news. The Brits even travelled to Vancouver Island to film a Land Rover commercial staring Eryn for an ad campaign that ran in Europe and Russia.
On May 31, 2009, CBC News: Sunday, concluded its final morning show after eight seasons on the air. Stories of Unique Canadians documented by the show over the 8 years were highlighted. To our delight, hosts Evan Solomon and Carole MacNeil highlighted Tom and Free Spirit Spheres.
