Five-part series hosted by w Leslie Leslie Nielsen, an fam- iliar to Canadian television au- diences for more than two dec- ades, will act as host for Tom Brown's Schooldays, which makes its debut on the CBC-TV network on Sunday, May 13, at 8 p.m. Filmed in nineteenth century costume, and at appro- priate settings for each of the five episodes, Nielsen will back- ground the historical signifi- cance ot the programs. "I'm delighted to take part in this he says, "be- cause the acting and produc- tion are so exceptionally good. All the roles have been perfect- ly oast, and for an actor like myself they're a joy to watch." The BBC series is based on the classic novel by Thomas Hughes which was written in 1857. It follows 13-year-old Tom Brown through his days at Rugby boarding school in Eng- land and tells the story of boy- hood friendship, loyalty and honor, as well as mischief, bullying and sometimes brutal- ity. Anthony Murphy, a British schoolboy making his first ap- pearance on television, is fea- tured in the title role, with Iain Cuthbertson as the head- master, Dr. Arnold, and Rich- ard Morant as the bully, Flash- man. Edmonton-born, and brother of Yukon MP Erik Nielsen, Leslie Nielsen began his act- ing career with the start of Canadian television in the early fifties. "Television was a great training ground in tlwse early he says. "The pressure of live drama forced you to learn your craft thor- oughly, and allowed you to make contributions to all areas of a production, including the writing and directing." He now works in and out of Hollywood, dividing his time between Re- vision and films and can cur- rently be seen in the hit movie "The Poseidon which recently won an Acade- my Award for special effects. The novel has been popular with young and old for over a century and has never been cut of print since it was first written in 1857. For the young, it's an exciting yarn, and for older readers it evokes half- fcTgotlen memories of youth. In addition, the BBC series focuses on the career of Dr. Arnold of Rugby, the one char- acter in the bcolc based on an historic figure. He was a re- former whose ideas are parti- cularly today when the future and aims of education are so hotly debated. An'-hor Thomas Hughes wrs born in 1322 a'ld Tom Brown's Scliooldays was his first, and many think best, book. It was published anonymously in 1857, but, when the author beeair-3 known, it was assumed that it chronicled the career of Hugh- es himself, who was a pupil at Rugby. However, he al- ways insistent that this wasn't so. He was a member of Parli- ament from 1865 to 1CS2, and died in 1805. The series itself hrs received glowing reviews from Britain's television critics. James Thom- as, writing in the Daily Ex- press, called it "compu'sive family, viewing" and added that he was impressed vith the ca_re and affection lavished upon it. The showbusiness jour- nal Variety described it as "rich in aJl departments from splendid atmosphere lo- cat'cns to uniformly sharp ins."
