The documentary is scheduled for release by the CBC on October 11th.
Shawnee Indian Chief Tecumseh's role in the War of 1812 is the subject of a film piece being produced by the Canadian Broadcast Company.
Producer David Wells is hoping the CBC's documentary will help boost attendance for the Outdoor Drama. Tecumseh! Administrative Assistant Bob Dehner says that will happen this summer when a bus transporting 50 residents of Tecumseh, Ontario make the trip to see the Outdoor Drama. The show takes stage nightly Monday through Saturday nights at 8pm.
Director Susan Teskey adds one of the key scenes from "Tecumseh!" the crew captured is of the chief's death at the Battle of Thames in Ontario.
