Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 25, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jay Sharbult 'Nova', PBS Science Series NEW YORK (AP) There's a new science scries on TV that might be just the llcket for you if you're the sort of adult who feels uneasy when tots ask things like, "Who in- vented Although the "Nova" scries on public TV doesn't come across with that answer, it did make a valiant effort Sunday night to explain the origins of life in a one-hour segment called "The Search for Granted, it sort of lost me amid chats on nucleic acids, "primordial soup" and "pro- tcinoids." But at least it wasn't one of those "popular" science shows rampant in childlike generalities. The 13-part Sunday series, which premiered March 3, isn't casual viewing. Billed as "scientific adventures for curious it de- mands the same intense con- centrationa particularly tough crossword puzzle re- quires. "We don't think the series is going over anybody's head, but it does1 respect the viewer's says Michael Rice, a program ex- ecutive at Boston's WGBH, which produces "What we're saying to the viewer is that here's a pro- gram that isn't going to pander to easy thinking. It's going to tax and sometimes puzzle you, even if you pay the closest attention." --.The-series, financed by million in private and federal grants, covers an incredible range of topics from nu- clear fusion to a delightful study, coming up April 21, of how birds navigate. One show, "Strange features medical theatrics. It's a dramatization of. how 19th Century doctors and sci- entists discovered anesthesia, and their roles are portrayed by real physicians from Mas- sachusetts General hospital and .the Harvard medical school. Rice says "Nova" was in- spired by the British Broad- casting Corporation's success- ful "Horizons" science series aid in fact includes seven "Horizon" programs in the current batch. The BBC's science scries, he said, has a full-time pro- duction unit that "has built a stunning record of reaching broad audiences with un- compromisingly good, reputa- ble and intellectually sound films about science and scien- tists." WGBH was. so impressed by the unit's work, he added, "we decided that we should lake it as our inspiration and try to'build in the U. S. a unit equally skillful in dealing with these difficult subjects." Staffers on WGBH's "Nova" unit, he said, are working with British producers hired on a short-time basis for the series wilh the idea of learn- ing "Horizon" techniques and eventually making their own shows. Rice, who said there'll be from. 20 to 26 new "Nova" segments on the air next sea- son, depending on finances, was asked if all Ihe shows would be produced by WGBH. "No, we expect in the future there'll always be a he said, meaning it'll still be a W G B H B B C project. "The hopeful thing is just as we'll be buying the.best of the BBC programs, they'll be buying the best of ours." In fact, he said, that's al- ready happening. He '..'said while in London several weeks ago, he turned on a television set in his hotel room and saw one of the WGBH-produced "Nova" shows oh the BBC. since, .public j broad- casting in .Ihe. United States has over the years ..used.-so much BBC he said, "I was immensely.gratified to see that now the traffic is starting to go both ways."

The house started debate on ;he bill last week before run- ning into a deadlock on its threshold section and the measure was put aside as "un- finished business."
