First domestic communications satellite Canada's Anik I and its impact This year, for the first time, Canadians in many remote and northern communities of the country are able to receive live radio and television broad- casts, and communicate with the outside world. It's the re- sult of the launching of a so- phisticated communica t i o n s satellite, Anik I, which is now n stationary orbit over the Equator, almost due south of Calgary. The history, development and impact of this satellite on Ca- nadians will be outlined on a special, one-hour program on the CBC-TV nstwork on Sun- day, July 1, at p.m. on channel 7. Entitled Space, Time and Anik I, it will explain how the satellite functions, what it means to Canadians who for- merly were isolated from di- rect, outside communications and its future implications for all Canadians. Anik was launched from Cape Kennedy, Florida, on Novem- ber 9, 1972, to become the first entirely domestic communica- tions satellite in the world. The property of Telesat, Canada, a combination of various tele- communications and electronic firms, it's capable of carrying two-way voice circuits and 12 color television chan- nels, resulting in virtual in- stantaneous c o m m u nication throughout Canada. Highlights of the program in- clude coverage of a tour by six high school studsnts from Northern Canada to communi- cations companies in Ottawa and Montreal who are users of Anik. They are also seen on an escorted tour of Oape Kennedy, and at the actual launch itself. Residents of Dawson City, Whitehorse, Yellowfcnife, Inu- vik and Frobisher Bay describe what the satellite has meant to iem especially as it relates te'evision.

Tracking down 'The Boss' keeps Hope staff on toes LOS ANGELES (NBC) Anybody who works for Bob lope for more than a week develops an amazing capacity or tracking down "the jy phone, by telegram, or even n person. In fact, locating the star of NBC-TV's "Bob Hope Specials" occupies a large per- BOB HOPE centage of the time for Hope's minions, since Rapid Robert is what the racetrack folks call "a mover and a go-er." Take the month of June, for instance. On June 1, Bob was at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs; on June 2 in Dallas, Texas at a P.O.W, salute; on June 4 in Philadel- phia at the USO Bob Hope sa- lute; on June 10 in Columbia, S.C. at a Veterans' Apprecia- tion Day; on June 14 in Wash- ington, D.C., to address the louse of Representatives, and later on "The Dick Cavett Show" in New York; on June 16 in Norfolk, Va. at "Norfolk- June 18 through June 23 at the Garden State Fair in New Jersey; on June 24 at the American Medical Association convention in New York City; and on June 25 and 26 in Cleve- land, Ohio, playing in a pair of golf tournaments one a benefit for the Hope House for pre-delinquent youngsters. For each of these appear- ances special material was written by Hope's writers, who must be able to track Bob down to have him pass on material dictated to him by phone. Producer head writer Mort Lachman, a specialist in writ- ing topical material for Hope monologues, says that many a day he has dictated a mono- logue to Bob white the comedian was in a phone booth in some airport to update his material constantly to conform with newspaper headlines. Although the material is written by his staff, Hope acts as his own editor, knowing what will fit his style and the delivery for a specific event. Between all these public ap- way of life. pearances, Hope manages to sandwich golf games with per- sonal friends, flying visits to his home and family in Palm Springs or in North Hollywood and planning sessions with tha network and with sponsors on his upcoming NBC-TV specials. The office which co-ordinates Hope's activities receives lit- erally hundreds of requests for Bob to do personal appear- ances, promotion tapes, auto- graph pictures and countless other things. Getting an ans- wer as to whether he will or won't is sometimes the neatest trick of the week, because Hope is either running for a plane, flying on a plane or travelling from an airport. "Can you get to they will ask his secretary, Miss Marjorie Hughes, a stalwart staff member for 30 years. The unflappable Miss Hughes will reply that she will be glad to pass along the message the next time she speaks to him. Soomer or later, everyone fi- gures Hope will check in with Miss Hughes.
