Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Garber leaves play for film TORONTO (CP) Victor Garber is leaving his role of Jesus In the Toronto production o( Godspell to play the Clown Prince of Peace in the film ver- sion of the play. Filming of Godspell, the rock musical based on the Godspell according to St. Matthew starts next month in New York. Director David Greene, for- mer CBC producer in Toronto, chose Garber, a 24-year-old Lon- don, Ont. native, for the role in the movie. New York is also a long way from the days Garber was lug- ging his guitar from office to of- fice looking for work. He arrived in Toronto after quitting school on his 16th birth- day and worked with George Luscombe, appearing in Hey Rube and The Golem of Venice. There was also a lean period, he said, like when lie ushered at the Royal Alexander Theatre, where he now is starring in Godspell for two weeks. He spent three years in Sugar Slioppe, with Peter Mann, and then went into the Canadian Hock Theatre doing songs from Jesus Christ Superstar and God- spell. He got to sing the Christ roles from both plays so when audi- tions opened for the Toronto production of Godspell, he was prepared.

Mr. Sinclair, 51, has a broad- casting career spanning eight years in radio and 20 years in television. The appointment, effective Aug. 1, was announced by Laur- ent Picard, earlier appointed president of the corporation, also effective Aug. 1. The ap- pointments follow the recent resignation of George Davidson as chief executive of the CBC. Mr. Sinclair succeeds Mr. Pi- card as executive vice-president and becomes the No. 2 man in the organization under Mr. Pi- card. Born in Bombay, India, and educated in England, Vaneou- ver and Toronto, Mr. Sinclair has built an international repu- tation as an author, actor, panelist, producer, commenta- tor and lecturer in various fields. He began writing radio and stage plays in and has won several national and interna- tional awards in his field. Mr. Sinclair was well known for such CBC television pro- grams as Man at the Centre, the Nature of Things, and docu- mentaries on a variety of sub- jects. He played a prominent part in the organization and adminis- tration of the Association of Ca- nadian Kadio and Television Artists. He is currently vice- president of the Producers' As- sociation. Hijack treaty ratified OTTAWA (CP) Canada has ratified The Hague international OTTAWA (CP) Local vision programming is gaining new life aided by technology and the Canadian Radio-Televi- sion Commission. Most Canadian television pro- duction is concentrated in the network centres of Montreal and Toronto. Programs are pro- duced for a wide audience and generally lack local flavor. But developments in cable tel- evision, technology and the atti- tude to the CRTC are beginning to change the picture. The commission has been pushing local origination on cable systems for more than two years. Community pro- gramming on Is an establislfd fact in large towns and cities across Canada. It has even progressed to the point where Maclean-Hunter Cable TV Ltd. has proposed broadcasting the programs from a transmitter to rural areas beyond the reach of cable ystems. The renewed interest in local irogramming has infected the over-the-air television ndustry as well. MESSES LOCAL SHOWS One of the main aims of new Toronto television station to devote a large slice of program time to loca shows. Some of the time will bi set aside for use by community groups. Organizers of CITY-TV consl dered Toronto a good choice for such a station because of its size and the variety of events and good-quality entertainmen shows available. But, Stanley Quinn, the CBC's chief development engineer, ex pects technology will also ena We TV stations in smaller centres to provide more loca programs In the next 10 years. He told a conference of tl: Electronic Industries Associa on In Montebello, Que., this eek that "for the first time in- tensive but adequate equip- icnt will be available for the iany small stations that could ot afford broadcast equipment or program origination." Mr. Quinn said there will robably be two levels of techni- al quality. Network programs 111 be filmed with high-quality olor equipment while local pro- uctions will be done by inex- pensive black-and-white equip- ment. convention aimed at suppress- ing aerial hijacking. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp announced Fri- day that instruments of ratifica- tion were deposited by Canadian diplomats earlier in the day in the three depository capitals: London, Moscow and Washing- ton.
