Abstract A portrait of Mount Royal and why its French name stuck: its evolution from supply depot to French explorers and farmers to its development as one of the world's principal cities. This program examines the characteristics and character of the original French population and the reasons for and manner in which that French character remained despite-and in some ways because of-the loss of Quebec to the English. In showing us the city, its history, its monuments, and its life, the program examines the separate lives of Franco- and Anglophones, and shows the effect of Montreal's metropolitanization on the Francophone citizenry.
