This is a silent and brutal landscape of twisted deformed rocks, of arid plains and sun drenched dry lakes. The Indians call the desert the "land that supports no man." On Monday February 8, 9'30 p.m., CTV p r e s e n t s in color the National Geographic Society Special The Great Mo- jave Desert. CPre-empting The Carol Burnett Show on this oc- casion.) This severe and dreadful "land that supports no man" lias in fact been the home for many men. The Shoshone and Paiute Indians have roamed throughout the desert wilder- ness. Spanish shepherds Cas early as the 1700s) grazed then- sheep on the arid plains. Silver rush miners eager to strike it rich, desert rats and natural- ists have all made their home and left their mark on this desolate landscape. Remarkably, all these groups are still to be found in tine Mojave and the film portrays the struggles (past and pres- ent) of these inhabitants of one of the harshest environments on earth. This CTV special joins a group of old timers reminisc- ing the "good old days" and with Colin Fletcher, a writer who spends long lonely months out on the desert. He in- troduces us to t h e surprises and deceptions of the an unexpected oasis, a spring laced with arsenic, a rippling mirage, and on the rim high above Death Valley, an opera house with sixteenth century decor. Narration is by Joseph Campanella. Replacement for Sullivan during summer For years, the Ed Sullivan Show has been unique since it ran 52 weeks of each year with an occasional repeat. In 1971, a show headed by Lph- man and Barkleyis being worked on to replace Ed for the 13 summer weeks. TO FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12, Journey to zoological paradise Second visit to Australia Of all the continents, the most exciting and yet least familiar to the naturalist, is the continent of Australia. Isolated from other major land masses for over 60 mil- lion years and protected by a minimum of interference, Aus- tralia has produced ancient and bizarre creatures that can- not be found anywhere else. Untamed World journeys to this zoological paradise on Australia (Part Sunday February 7, p.m. on Channel 13. To the rest of the world Aus- tralia is represented by one unique creature the kanga- roo. The kangaroo belongs to a family of animals called mar- supials, a group of mammals, all of whom have pouches in which most carry their young. Untamed World's second visit to Australia reveals more of that country's richness of animal life. Film is shown of the emu, an ostrich-like bird which lost the ability to fly centuries ago but more than by running at speeds approaching 40 miles per hour. Also seen is footage of the famous koala, a -furry snub- nosed, cuddlcsome little crea- ture that a few short years ago neared extinction. Now heavily protected, the koala has a strange digestive system that permits it to live exclusively on the eucalyptus tree. For any other creature the toxic poisons found in this tree would mean certain death.
