Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 6, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, February 6, 1975 Keith new private TV eye with 'personality' By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) Television's midseason replacements are usually emergency affairs. Some old show is doing so badly that the network suddenly decides to make a change and the new show has virtually no time to get ready. Archer, Brian Keith's new NBC show, is one of those last second decisions come to life. "This was one of those Keith says, "where I had' to start work yesterday." Archer is replacing Iron- side, Raymond Burr's show. It wasn't doing badly but Burr had health problems and couldn't continue. The network riffled through its file of show possibilities and plucked Archer from the stack.

LETHBRIDGE 421 Mayor Magrath Drive 328-1111 show based upon the popular Ross Macdonald character, without anything particularly unusual about the show at this writing. But NBC is betting a lot of money that Keith's per- sonality can triumph over the basically routine material. He's a tried and true TV type and has a track record that proves the public likes him. Keith says he's doing it purely for the money in- volved. "And it's very good he says. He first said he'd do the show, provided they would let him film in Hawaii where he lives. NBC said no, it had to be in Hollywood. Keith argued that other shows have been successfully shot in Hawaii his own show, variously known as The Little People and The Brian Keith Show, and Jack Lord's very successful Hawaii Five 0. NBC still said no. They said this one was a rush job and rush jobs are better done in the Hollywood studio, where it can be done quicker. Keith finally agreed, but with the proviso that if it is successful it will be shot in Hawaii next season. That's the way it stands at the moment. The shooting schedule is now so tight that Keith is ac- BRIAN KEITH CKTA Proudly Presents In Person COUNTRY SUPERSTAR...

They've given him an apartment on the lot. That way, he doesn't have to waste any time in commuting, so they can shoot late at night and start again early the next morning. How does Archer differ from other TV private eyes? "He says Keith no mincer of words. "They had the first script with a gim- mick me sitting around my place in my underwear. They thought that was cute. I said no, I couldn't do that f was too fat for that these The gamble is simply that Keith's strong personality will lift the show. up, that the public wants to see him and won't care too much about the vehicle he's in. Keith's desire to film in Hawaii is based on the fact that his family is there and he loves the islands. He can't un- derstand the incidence of "rock fever" among certain mainlanders who try to live in Hawaii. That's the feeling of claustrophobia, of being trapped by a sea girt island. "I have a he says. "In the beginning, long before races and creeds, divided up according to where they lived there Were mountain people and valley people and desert people and ocean people. And we all have some distant memories of our early origins. "I'm obviously one of the ocean people. When I was on Broadway I was miserable until I got an apartment where I could see the Hudson River.

His two children Robert 'is six and Daisy five are back in Hawaii with their mother, Hawaiian born actress Victoria Young. "I should be their grand- Keith says, "but they keep me young." On their last trip to Los Angeles, the children got .aboard the plane and, when their mother wasn't looking, the stewardess fed them some champagne. "The next thing we Keith says, "the two of them were standing in the aisle, glasses raised on high, saying, 'Here's to all the pretty girls.' I wonder where they got that toast." Brian Keith is one of those stage born and stage raised people. Back when he was born, his parents, both actors, were on tour with a play. In Bayonne, N.J., they had to stop for his arrival. For the first years of his life, he was carried around the country as they performed. "1 literally grew up in a he says. "Then they were divorced and I went to live with my mother's people in Washington state and Mon- tana. I divided my- time between there and New York where my father was acting.

WASHINGTON (AP) After weeks of heated debate, the United States' television industry's code board have agreed on a change in its TV code designed to keep sex and violence off TV during early evening hours, or at least warn viewers in advance of offensive material. The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) reported that the section of the code, agreed on at a closed meeting, says: "Entertainment pro- gramming inappropriate for viewing by a general fami- ly audience should not be broadcast during the first hour of network entertain- ment programming in prime time and in the immediate preceding hour. "In the occasional case when an entertainment program for this period is deemed to be inappropriate: for such an audience, ad- visories should be used to alert viewers." Night, network programm- ing starts at 8 p.m. in some time zones and 7 p.m. in others. The code board also said "advisories should be used when porgrams in later prime time periods contain material that might be disturbing to significant elements of the audience." All three networks and more than 60 per cent of United States television stations subscribe to the code. The proposal, to go into effect next September, must be approved by the association's board of direc- tors during the NAB conven- tion April 6 9.
