Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 'Lead stars named for CTV presentation New science-fiction series set for Fall TORONTO (CTV) Glen- Warren Productions and the CTV television network recent- ly signed Gay Rowan, a Cana- dian-born actress, to play the female lead In The Starlost, an original science fiction ser- ies premiering this fall on CTV, Jacob Bronowski TV's super sleuth He's an Intellectual Sherlock Holmes, a scientific sleuth who tracks down the secrets of man's cultural development. His clues are locked in such inaccessible locations as the private archives of the Vatican JACOB BRONOWSKI and the jungles of the Amazon. He seeks out li'tle known facts from the ancient cities of the Incas and the mystical writ- ings of the alchemists. Then each week, on CBC na- tional television at 10 p.m. on Tuesday evening, he presents his findings in dramatic and articulate revelations of man's scientific evolution. The cultural investigator is Dr. Jacob Bronowski, distin- guished scientist, author and broadcaster, who hosts and narrates "The Ascent of a series of 13 programs made by the BBC, and being co- sponsored in Canada by Mac- Millan Bloedel and CBC. Bronowski takes the camera to the actual locations where great scientific events occurred and re-creates them with ab- solute accuracy and scrupulous attention to detail. A highly respected scientist and scholar in his own right, Dr. Bronowski is also an in- spired teacher who has the ability to translate science into dramatic television fare. Being shown for the first time in the world outside the United Kingdom, the series is receiv- ing enthusiastic press notices and is already being acclaim- ed as a remarkable television achievement. The series, which lasts unti August 21, covers nearly 30 countries and moves to loca- tions where previously no cam- eras had been allowed. One sequence, for insance, recreates the trial of Galileo in the se- cret archives of the Vatican "What we wanted to says Dr. Bronowski, "is to give a sense of immediacy and make the viewer feel that all the time he is there." Miss Rowan, especially noted or her modern approach to acting, has appeared on stage, elevision and film in lead as well as principal roles. The 25 Miss Rowan was born n Toronto, Ontario, moved to 'ickering at the age of three and grew up there. Her first acting experience was with the Red Barn Theatre during the summer of 1965. With the taste for theatre, she continued in Toronto with the Toronto Workshop with roles in Flood and Che Gue- vara. She lias also played the Theatre Passe Muraille in Buz- zer and later played Sister Joy in the Global Village pro- duction of The Life of Lady Godiva. She has played the lead role in three films, Down- hill All The Way, Race Home To Die, and her most recent role, the lead in U-Turn, which is the official Canadian entry that is opening the Berlin Film Festival. The Starlost stars Keir Dul- lea. Mr. Diillea is best known for his performances in David and Lisa and 2001, A Space Odyssey. Miss Rowan will be appearing opposite Mr. Dullea. CTV and Glen-Warren Pro- ductions also announced they hove secured the services of one of Canada's best known writer producer directors, William Davidson, who will act as producer. Mr. Davidson has been involved in major television and motion picture production since 1948. The Starlost is set hundreds of years in the future on a megaltthic, imitti levelled spaceship journeying through the deepest space. The memory of earth has faded from, the minds of those generations who have been bom, have lived and died on this space craft. During the months of June and July, Glen-Warren design- ers and technicians will be busying themselves creating the and developing logistics of movement within the craft. The models, now be- designed, will be built and experimentation will begin. Twenty-two U.S. TV stations have already committed them- selves to carry the program and several others are pending.

For one thing she has been famous longer than most of them. She has been on the stage for 65 years and a star for 50 of those years. Long recognized as the "First Lady of the American thea- she has won just about every acting award possible and has had a Broadway thea- tre named in her honor. "I never knew how to do it well to be says Miss Hayes, who this fall will co-star with Mildred Natwick in the NBC Television Network's "The Snoop Sisters.'' She admits that as a child she had occasional daydreams about what fame would be like, "But I don't remember that the need to achieve fame was an overpowering private fantasy with which I lived. "I wanted to be famous only because in my profession fame is directly related to how good you are. Fame in the theatre means material rewards at the box office, and it also means that you have a choice of better roles. And this is very impor- tant to an actor who is crea- tive and who is seeking grow- she says. "But what fame demands of you, once you have achieved it, is both onerous and bothersome. Even though it is all part of my work, it has never ceased to bother she said.
