Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU MARQUIS HOTEl The Letltbrtdge Herald TELEVISION GUIDE Burger Baron Phone 328-4717 FOR PICKUP ORDERS FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1971 LISTINGS FOR SATURDAY, MARCH 13 TO FRIDAY, MARCH 19, 1971 Probe sea cave secrets In the midst of a large ocean reef, fifty miles off the coast of Central America, lies a strange geological phenomenon. A mysterious circular hole over a thousand feet in diameter is plainly visible from the air. Its depth is unknown. To the northeast, the shallow waters of the Bahama Islands, other underwater holes, betrayed by a dark blue appearance in an otherwise azure sea, perforate the reefs off Andros Island. Some of these openings are round, others are highly irregular in shape. On Friday, March 19, 7:00-8:00 p.m., CTV's The Undersea World Of Jacques Cousteau investigates these strange geological holes on the Secrets Of The Sunken Caves. (The Andy Williams Show is pre-empted for this occasion.) In Secrets Of The Sunken Caves, Jacques Cousteau and his Calypso crew make a perilous journey into these strange, underwater cavities to unravel their secrets. Their subterranean journey is more than an adventure into an unknown, dangerous void. It is a scientific probe into the earth's past -a past dating back 170 million years - a time before the  Atlantic Ocean as we know it SECRETS OF THE SUNKEN CAVES - On Friday, March 19, 7:00-8:00 p.m. CTV's The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau investigates the mysterious geological phenomenon of cavities in the sea. Water, far darker than that sur- rounding it (shown above), mark the presence of such holes. The legends associated with them are innumerable, but Captain Cousteau attempts to discover the real Secrets Of The Sunken Caves. was formed. For the underwater openings in the earth, we 'learn, are the entrances to complex subsea caves. Captain Cousteau has long been fascinated by these mysterious cellars of the sea. From the air, the sight of their apertures in the ocean floor is breathtaking*. Many of the openings, he discovers, are the result of cavern ceilings collapsing. Whereverthe holes are found, their beautiful but foreboding appearance gives cause to local superstition and folklore. They go by many names: Sink holes; Cenotes; Indian wells. Captain Cousteau must measure his curiosity against the risk. The contributions of man's knowledge of the oceans will be vastly enriched by successful dives, yet Cousteau is acutely aware that his initial responsibility is to the crew of the Calypso. He is pleased when they volunteer as a group. The results are breathtaking. The divers reveal spectacular seascapes never before seen by man. CBC quiz on travel in Canada Do you know where you can get a meal of solomon gundy, steamed brown bread and blueberry grunt? Or where you'd find strange rock formations called "Hoiodoos", or how much money Canadians will spend on their vacations in 1971? If you've got the correct answers to these all-Canadian questions you will probably do well when CBC-TV presents the color special Canadian Travel Test Sunday, March 14 at 8 p.m. The fifth in the CBC produced "Test" programs (previous ones were on history, driving, physical fitness and crime), the show is designed to entertain and instruct Canadians about the many fascinating vacation areas and activities available in their own country. The Ed Sullivan Show will not be seen. Search for origin of man National Geographic special Twentieth century man has conquered the earth and challenged outer space but he still does not know where he came from. Archeologist Dr. Louis Leakey attempts to fathom the mystery of man's origin on Dr. Leakey And The Dawn Of Man, a one-hcur National Geographic Special to be telecast in color Saturday, March 13, 7:00-8:00 p.m. on the CTV Television Network. (The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour is pre-empted on this occasion.) Dr. Louis Leakey, who spent the past 40 years of his life seeking the secret of man's origin, was born 65 years ago in a mud hut in Kenya. As an archeology student at Cambridge, Leakey astonished his professors by declaring that he believed man to have originated in Africa. Dr. Leakey discovered Oldu- vai Gorge, 370 miles west of Nairobi, a veritable history book on man. For over 30 years Dr. Leakey and his wife worked in the Gorge, uncovering animal fossils, stone tools, and artifacts, but nothing really concrete to prove his theory. On July 17, 1959, while climbing up the side of the Gorge, Mary Leakey saw small fragments of what appeared to be a human skull. Film shot 24 hours later shows Dr. Leakey actually lifting out fragments of what was later to be named Zinjanthropus, or East Africa Man. In 1960 another set of teeth were discovered which were more like modern man. It was the second man, "Homo Habilis" who survived, by competing with animal scavengers. It would seem that he is the direct ancestor of modern-day man. Tiny land with big problems Th last remaining British Crown Colony on the mainland of the Western Hemisphere is British Honduras, a tiny land with big problems. On CBC-TV's Tuesday Night series, March 16, at 10:00 p.m. a one-hcur color film documentary tilled Belize, after the colony's capital city, takes viewers to this humid, multi-racial land which depends largely on a sugar cane economy. Britain and Spain have constantly vied for jurisdiction in British Honduras - the Central American country bounded on the north by Mexico and surrounded by Guatemala. This continues today, with Guatemala threatening annual invasion, and Britain maintaining a military garrison in tha colony. * HOYT'S GARDENING SOON!
