Adieu Alouette was a Canadian television documentary anthology series on the life and culture of Quebec. It was produced by the National Film Board of Canada for the network and aired on CBC Television in 1973.


The series was intended to portray Quebec's culture to English Canada and to dispel misconceptions about the province, particularly in response to the 1970 October Crisis and the rise of the Quebec sovereignty movement. The series approach was cultural and apolitical.[2]


The series was first aired on CBC on Wednesdays, 10:30 p.m. (Eastern) from 3 January to 25 April 1973. It was repeated on Sundays, 2:00 pm from 6 January to 24 March 1974. The series consisted of 11 half-hour episodes plus the hour-long "Why I Sing: The Words and Music of Gilles Vigneault".
