National Geographic Special 'Holland Against The Sea' Holland to most people means windmills and tulips, quaint costumes and wooden shoes, Hans Brinker and his silver skates. Not as well known are such facts as Holland has huge metropolitan areas, great mo- lern harbors, rich mechanized farmlands, large industrial jlants and fine recreational fa- cilities. To the Dutch, however, Holland is aU this and a cease- ess fight against a formidable friend and foe water. For centuries the water has sought to destroy the Nether- lands and for centuries the Dutch have sought to harness lie water. The "CTV Sunday Night Special" presents the "National Geographic Society Special: Holland Against The to be telecast on the CTV Television Network Sunday, August 19 at 7.30 p.m.; the story of their never ending struggle and how that struggle ras shaped their land and their ives. Half of present day Holland should be under water, includ- ing the country's three major cities, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. It isn't be- cause of a system of dykes, lams and sluices that were ini-' tiated in Roman times. Caesar found the Nether- land's primitive inhabitants liv- ing on top of man made mounds of earth, just high enough to stay dry at high tide. 5ie Romans taught the Dutch to build long walls of rock and grass, behind which vil- .ages soon sprang up. THEY FIGHT BACK The Romans departed and [hitch life continued, despite he floods that broke through their man made obstructions covering the land, sometimes permanently. Most people would have retreated as the water advanced, But not the Dutch. They fought back. At first they fought back with buckets of water emptied into the sea by hand. Then, about six hundred years ago, with windmills and finally with steam. However, it seemed the sea could always destroy the land faster than men could re- build or reclaim it. The tele- cast points this out by focusing on the 1953 flood which killed nearly 2000 people and inun- dated five per cent of the coun- try. K was this disaster that prompted the Delta Plan to link the country's southern is- lands to each other and to the mainland, thus eliminating many mites of coastal expo- sure to the sea. So it goes on, night and day, every day of the year. Hol- land's coastline is constantly changing, being flooded, dredg- ed, dammed and reclaimed. For example, outside Amster- dam, the cameras view Schi- pol Airport, built on the site of an historic naval battle. Be- Dad best man for Lee Majors HOLLYWOOD Majors, star of the ABC tele- vision network's Six Million Dollar Man and co-star of Owen Marshall, Counselor of Law, was married recently to actress Sarrah Fawcett Houston, Texas, at the Bel- Air Hotel in West Los An- geles, California. Majors' father, Harvey Ma- jors of Middleboro, Ky., was best man at the wedding and Diane Walls, the britls's sis- ter, was matron of honor. tween the runways strips of corn and grain prow. All this is behind-the-scenes. "Holland Against The Sea" looks at the other side of Dutch life as well the daily work and recreation of a lively and hard-working people. Tourists are seen arriving and departing, cargo ships loa- ding and unloading, fishermen hauling in their herring catch, children being taken to school through canals, tulips the market place, seamen ke yachting and even Sinterklaas (Santa Claus) arriving on a canal barge. Weathered fishermen, the sailors, merchants, engineers and farmers, they are the peo- ple "Holland Against The Sea" views, for they are the people who through courage, persist- ence and hard work give rea- son to believe in the old adage, "God made the world, but the Dutch made You Can't Beat The Leader In Food CHINESE FOOD WESTERN MEALS LIGHT LUNCHES MAJORETTE RESTAURANT HOURS: Open Dally 8 ct.m. to 8 p.m. Closed on Sundays and 612 3rd AVE.
