Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Radio-TV watchdogs challenge CBC role By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) More than 220 briefs have been filed with the Canadian Radio- Television Commission (CRTCj supporting or criticizing the CBC's appli- cation for a five-year renewal of all its radio and television 1 icences The application goes before the commission in a public hearing opening here Feb. 18. Six volumes of pleadings and data filed by the CBC In support of its application promise more Canadian programs, fewer commercials, wider dis- semination of programs and more attention to regional productions. The corporation also asks for a fundamental revision of its financing. Instead of loans from the public treasury, on which it is charged interest, the corporation should be given outright grants by Parliament and forgiven its past indebtedness, the CBC says. Most of the criticism comes from radio-television watchdog organizations, asking for better service in the hinterland, less dependence on Toronto and Montreal production centres and an end to commercials, Laurent Picard, CBC presi- dent, is expected to open the hearings with a three-hour oral statement, following which he will be questioned by CRTC chairman Pierre Juneau and members of the commission. The hearings are L.C.C. CHINOOK WINTER CARNIVAL Presents CONCERT THE BROTHERS BOGAARDT EXPANSION with The Jackie Gracette Dancers MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11th and P.M.

The chief criticism has been filed in a 187-page brief by The Committee on Television, a Toronto-based group of artists, authors, academics and community leaders, many of them past or (present employees of the CBC. While not advocating that the CBC's application for renewal be rejected, the committee says conditions should be put on its new licences requiring it to re- duce its dependence on com- mercials, to produce fewer but better programs, repeating them mure frequently on the air, and to encourage regional productions and independent film-makers. The CBC says the broad- casting industry generally is entering a period in which all normal channels are fully occupied, cable television are bringing American network programs deep into Canada, and competition for audience is becoming fiercer. Viewers and listeners have to make more choices in what they want on their receiving sets. But the trend is also to- wards people spending less time at their sets and more time in other leisure pursuits. Show Times February 11, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 7 Nude entertainer claims raw deal OTTAWA (CP) A American entertainer her body to near-zero temperatures Friday, pressing complaints that she's ended up with a raw deal from the energy crisis. Miss Nude International, exotic dancer and self- described concerned citizen, said the problems of entertainers such as herself needed exposure. Amid a nest of microphones, warming television lights antf a flock of reporters who passed up another energy statement by External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp, the 22-year- old New Orleans native pressed her points. To begin with, Leigh Sharon said with a nervous giggle, the whole thing is a little far-fet- ched. What effect would a nude news conference, way up here in frigid ol' Canada, have on energy restrictions in the United States? But the problem was a real one, and could be revealed just as easily from a burlesque theatre as any other forum. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS HOSACK Mechanic 8-304 5th SI. S.

Aft W TEEN BURGER TUESDAY Toen Burger LOS ANGELES (AP) A peek into the future indicates television may be on the verge of taking a profitable step backward. The networks may be about to take a stroll down memory lane. It's all going to depend on just how popular nostalgia turns out to be. If people really want to be transported back to the 1940s and '50s, the studios have laid in a supply of bobby sox and hot rods and stand ready to deliver. Summer of '42, The Last Picture Show, American Graffiti and other memory movies proved that people would pay money for another look at those innocent days. That is, innocent in light of the 1970s. The Waltons was the first successful period piece aside from the Western since The Untouchables. The Waltons, set in the Depression, is something of a special case. It is based on the life of a real family and is blessed with superior writing and casting. M-A-S-H is set in the early 1950s during the Korean War. But it really doesn't deal with the period directly. It uses the Korean War as a metaphor to talk about all wars. The real proof of whether people will tune in week after week appears to rest on a new and unpretentious comedy from ABC called The Happy Days. If this 1950s period piece succeeds, other series are waiting in the wings. PARAMOUNT THEATRE ADULT NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN paramount TONITEAND TUESDAY TONITE AT P.M.
