Iconic Canadian television show that featured a multicultural cast in the real-life town of Gibsons, B.C. The cast centered around Greek immigrant Nick Adonidas and his log salvage company. His rival and source of much aggravation in the community was scruffy curmudgeon Relic.

The show was one of the longest running dramatic series on Canadian television, with 387 episodes spanning from 1972 to 1991. The show aired in the United States on Famliy Net on weekday afternoons starting September 1, 2011, but was removed from the line-up after September 28, 2012 due to the network falling into new ownership that felt the show did not fit in with the new rural-themed direction they wanted the station to go and replaced it with Highway To Heaven reruns.
