IDNR-TV (In Depth Natural Resources Television) was created in 2003 by Ivor Barr, a seasoned producer with over four decades in the film industry. He resolved to set the bar higher than mainstream reality television, to deliver Canadian content with substance. In 2006, the focus was bringing public awareness to Canada’s natural resources and its importance to the economy.
One of the longest running independent broadcasters in the country, IDNR-TV aired from 2006 to 2020, on Persona Cable and Cablevision du Nord. Recognized with special presentations at international film festivals, IDNR-TV also created the first ever Mining Film Festival and ran the events for six years.
“Now we dedicate our energy to a production that it's for us a passion, since having the privilege to discover and understand over many years, our Indigenous people. With "Sacred Secrets of the North,” IDNR-TV intends to close the gap with compelling stories and visuals from the distant north. While so many seek meaning and authenticity in their lives, this series is sure to enlighten and inspire.”
Canadians may realize that natural resources are a major contributor to our economy. However IDNR-TV will now provide the public with programs that delve into the key issues we are facing in the industry, the people involved, what they do and the future of the industry.
My colleagues and I at the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum look very positively on this type of programming.
We applaud your efforts in developing this new communication vehicle and wish you success in this initiative.
IDNR broaches subject content touched by few competitors, filling a long- standing void in the mining industry, while serving to highlight modern governance and social themes including Aboriginal content, corporate social responsibility initiatives and reflecting the challenges and beauty of many of Canada’s remote communities.
I completely endorse the quality and capacity of IDNR-TV and would be pleased to offer more insight to any seeking confirmation or clarity about my endorsement.
Your channel is extremely important to add to the mix of viewing options being made available to the Canadian public. IDNR-TV offers a fresh look at the building blocks of the society and economy of Canada.
Best wishes for success in this important endeavour.
