DAVID SUZUKI Suzuki, 34, is a Vancouver-born geneticist of international reputation who is considered one of Canada's most brilliant teachers and research scientists. Beginning Sunday, January 10, at 2:00 p.m. this avant-garde professor of Zoology at Musical documentary Wednesday Canada's newest professional symphony orchestra and its 33-year-old maestro Mario Bernard! are the stars of a CBC television music - documentary The National Arts Centre Orchestra, for telecast on the network Wednesday, Jan. 13, a 9 p.m. (in color). The NAC Orchestra is barely a year old; it performed its first concert on October 7. 1969. Its membership totals 44 musicians, and of these 25 are under the age of 30. Some of the young instrumentalists had never played in an orchestra before, and many are alumni of the excellent National Youth Orchestra. The musical aspect of the d o c u m e n tary is interwoven with the visual, leading up to a full performance of Prokofiev's Classical Symphony (No. 1 in D Major) in the Opera House. The program ends with this sequence. the University of British Columbia will present a five-part look at what he himself describes as "the mysteries of life" in Suzuki On Science, a new CBC-TV series on science and humanity. Acknowledged as one of the best researchers in genetics in North America, Dr. Suzuki is also the first scientist in Canada to receive the E. W. R. Steaoie memorial fellowship for the third consecutive year. To many people, the term "genetics" has come to mean the creation of "test tube Kfe" in laboratories by scientists who strive to develop races of superbeings. Indeed, the field has produced startling results in recent years: the Code of Life itself has been broken, the DNA Molecule created, and a laboratory created gene is now a reality. But while research in growing human foetus in test tubes is actually taking place, genetics has a much broader role and range than that particular aspect. Geneticists are working on preventive medicine; they are striving to repair defective genes in yet-unborn children; and they are seeking ways to cure previously incurable diseases by means of genetics "engineering". On our present situation Or. Suzuki offers many thoughts: for example, he feels we need badly some means of screening new products before letting them loose on the public. He points to DDT and Hie Birth Control Pill as prime examples. On Jan. 10, the first program of the series will deal with Fertilization: Dr. Kelly Towell and Dr. James Miller of the UBC Faculty of Medicine discuss the extraction of genes from amniotic fluid in the foetus to gather data on the RH Nega-ive factor in blood. Also planned are discussions on a new Japanese technique to determine mongolism in yet-unborn babies, and interviews about "test-tube babies". Born in Vancouver, Dr. Suzuki obtained bis Ph.D from the University of Chicago in ] 1961. After having completed research and fellowship studies in the U.S., he became assistant professor of Genetics at the University of Alberta, and in 1963 he joined UBC as assistant professor of Zoology. He was appointed to his present position in 1965, and is now professor of Zoology.
