Mr. Wedman s move ompted by his disappoint- ent with a medium he eemed had fulfilled little of its potential. Dramatic and com- [y series, variety shows, news the whole TV bag him was a day-in, day-out ishmash of stunted dreams. The Canadian and American etworks are now drawing up chedules for the next season nd those schedules are expect- d to feature a majority of en- Urely new shows. Last year's ew entries and some of the jerennial favorites, such as Ed ullivan, Dean Martin, -Mannix, and Red Skelton, have lost avor with viewers. Indeed, Mr. 'edman's analysis seems true f the medium as a whole. It as become a bore. Ardent TV fans have this jason been left with the tedi- us job of wondering if Henry Fonda in The Smith Family is eally any better than the shows iiich were dropped at mid- eason, such as The Young Eebels and Nancy. Canadian made series famous Jury Trials, The Trouble with Tracy, Rainbow Country are for the most aart not to be endured. Ameri can shows, even if their idea o mprovement is merely chang ng the name of The Store ront Lawyers to Men at Law at least have a professiona slickness to them which Canada up to this point can't touch. But the slicfcness, this year' plethora of situa ion family comedies featailnj none dimensional characters sociological issues tied up ii simplistic solutions in 60 rein utes or less, have left many viewers bone-weary. TV news has yet to come u to the level it should be. De- spite its attributes of sound an ticture, the medium, partial Larly locally, continues to be watch-me-read-the-news. On the two local stations CFCN-Lethbridge and CJLH TV, in-depth reporting is latter of holding an interview ith a person who is allowed propagandize at will. Seldom e penetrating questions isked. Tie stations suffer from lack f funds and can't feasibly add le visual content they would ke to. But lack of funds is Kir problem, not the viewers'. Vhat is the viewers' problem s the superficial news they et. The stations have never uiken a hard look at the two earby Indian reserves, at ppv- rty In Lethbridge, declining hurch memberships, the qual- ty of life in the city. What iewers do get are read out newspaper headlines and not much more. As for the national public af- a i r s programs, Canadians lave about been knocked in- ensible by anti-pollution pro- prams, nature studies, abortion shows. It is a measure of the depth of CTV's public affairs commitment that last week W5 included coverage of the Mus- ang Ranch, a legalized prosti- ution drop-in centre in rather than an examination of >restitution in Canadian cities. The reason? The ranch was easy to find and in one locality. A study of the subject for, say, Toronto, would have taken a iot more digging. If anything is missing on TV (and a lot it is people. Weekend, CBC's public affairs flagship show, loves to cover the Middle East situation, pol- itical rallies, abortion, Ameri- can problems, but just once and a while it would be nice to see a profile of a personality. This preponderance of "is- sues" may be one reason why CBC's Telescope and The For- syte Saga and the CTV's Pi- erre Bcrton interviews have be- come so likeable. In these shows, one sees people, even if in soap opera form, attaining some dimension of complexity. A half-hour spent with W. 0. Mitchell or Patty Conklin, as on Telescope, is worth 12 hours of The Family Affair, Ironside Lucille Ball, the Barbara Me Nan- Show and that campy cuisiniere, the Galloping Goto met. Maybe viewers demand too much of television, whereas they tend to no-hum over radio's music and commercials for- mula and newspapers' obses- sion with politics, finance and war. But when TV is good, it can't be beaten. TV almost harms it- self by occasionally producing items of merit. One night view- ers are treated to an excellent production of Arthur Miller's The Price. The next night, on the same channel and at the same time, they are likely mis- treated to the banal Men from Shiloh. Tying in such pap with such excellence ruins the en- tire credibility of the medium. TV has increasingly been run by men with one eye on the tyr- annical ratings and another on the cash box. Perhaps writers, journalists and producers need to have a freer hand on whal actually goes on the air. At any rate, those in control have left viewers with the era increasing feeling that an eve- ning spent watching television has been four hours wasted. CFCN-Lethbridge's study o drug use in southern Alberta shown Tuesday night, suffered From its late-night timing the schedule and its mis-tim- ing as far as the entire drug issue is concerned. Drugs, like abortion and pollution, have I been covered to death by TV. j Until more research is done on the subject, most of us will :iave to hold our decision in abeyance. That drugs are be- ing used in southern Alberta is hardly news, and the four in- terviewers and two hosts on CFCN could have nothing en- lightening to say unless they had been involved in research. The show, a Pendulum pro- duction, featured representa- tives of the University of Leth- bridge and the department of youth who for the most part merely exchanged opinions. The most noteworthy of these came from the youth depart- ment's At Brewer who sug- gested some drug users went out of their way to be caught by the police.
