Mission; to examine how marine life has responded to the presence of wartime debris. The Undersea World Of Jacques Cousteau: Lagoon Of Lost Ships is a -CTV color special Monday, January 4, to p.m. on Channel 13. Animal behavior What makes animals behave i In the way they do? Is it Intel-; lige'nce or is it instinct? For many years biologists hare: sought answers to questions prompted by the sometimes i strange a EI d baffling behavior The studios of one uudi biologist, Heinz Sielmann, ta.ro tlte subject OL the special The Mystery Animal Be- havior, to be telecast in color on the CTV Network, on Fri- day January 8, p.m. on Channel 13. Sieimann, one of the best- known biologists in the Sold, has also been called 'the world's most patient man' a title he has truly, earned. For observing ajilmals in thetr nat- tsral environment requires liour acliing hour concealed ia built hides, not mov- ing a muscle. His studies pro- duced hundreds of thousands ot feet of film and several bocks and Sieimann has lectured vddely on his findings. The Mystery Of Animal Be- a National Geograph- ic special, features Film shot bv Sielniann in many parts of the world, including Africa, the Alaskan Tundra. Germany, Australia, the Galapagos and Canada where he was studying the musk ox and the big honi- ed sheep of the Rockies.

Lagoon of lost ships During the two days of Feb- ruary 17 and 18, Ameri- can Navy- bombers carried out extensive raids on a group of South Pacific Islands called Truk, The result oF these bomb- ing missions was the total des- truction of tiie central staging area, of the Imperial Jaoanese Navy. Today the 40 miie wide Truk lagoon is the quiet unex- plored graveyard of 32 Jap- anese naval vessels with at least another twenty yet to be charted. The potential for scientific exploration at Truk has long tempted tiie famed marine ex- plorer biologist Jacques Cousteau, and on Monday, -Jan- uary 4, p.'m., a chronicle of what was found is presented mi CTV's The Under- sea World of Jacques Cousteau: Lagoon Of Lost Ships. The sights of the first foray onto Truk are impressive. Des- pite the ravages time and decay, evidence of the military occupation of the islands and the subsequent bomber raids are still present. By using war- time film footage both Ameri- can and Japanese, Lagoon Of Lost Ships puts the terrible ev- ents that occurred on Truk twenty-five years ago into his- torical perspective. Scenes of American planning and strat- egy meetings, of reconnais- sance photographs being an- alyzed, of carrier planes launch- ing their attack and of the fierce Japanese resistance is shown. TWs is a vivid contrast to the placidity and tropical beauty experienced by the divers from Cousteau's re- search ship 'Calypso'. In the lagoon Captain Cousteau makes his first dive! and tile result is cxhilnrating. j On land the wartime relics are i liUlo more than cruel and grossly .shape.s. Be- neath (he warm waters of the Pacific the sunken hulls have become underwater gardens of striking, colors and shapes. Microscopic plant activity and coral have transformed Hie machines o.f war into artificial habitats for all kinds of marine life. The Feature slwnvs the divers examining several merchant ships. Ttie artifacts of the war are ever-present.
