Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 'Ascent of Man9 filmed in 27 countries Noted BBC series makes debut on T The Ascent Of Man, a BBC television series of immense breacth, will make its North American debut on the CBC tel- evision network oo Tuesday, May 29, at 10 p.m. The thir- teen hour-long programs, which outline the history of science as a history of man, are written and hosted by the noted mathe- matician, author and broad- caster, Dr. Jacob Bronoirela. Work on the 13-week series began in March, 1970, with a year's research, followed by a little over a year's location filming in 27 countries. The programs deal with the actual places where great evolution- ary, cultural and intellectual steps took place, and with the men who motivated and some- times created those steps. For instance, one sequence marks the first filming which ever took place in the secret ar- chives of the Vatican, for a complete reconstruction of the trial of Galileo. "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. That here is i some place that he has never been to before, and may never g to. This is one reason why I -iave chosen to go to places that I have never been to be- fore either. I think we gain enormously by the fact that I am as surprised by wliat I see as the viewer." Some of these places include the Orno Valley in southern Ethiopia where the first re- mains of man have been found; the Zagros Mountains of Iran for a look at the strange, migrating Bakhtiari tribe; the Incan ancient city of Machu Picchu with its many architec- tural wonders; the German uni- versity town of Gottingen where 20th century physics began, and Cordova where the semi- circular arch went into mass production. It is Dr. Bronowski's person- al view that unifies the 13 epi- sodes of The Ascent of Man. Ac- cording to the program's pro- ducer and director, Adrian Ma- lone, "Bronowski has made al- most as many public appear- ances in England as the Beat- les If you ask any taxi driver in London, he'll tell you that he's the only man who's ever made a science live, be exciting and understandable." Born in Poland in 1908, Dr. Bronowski was educated in both German and English schools STid studied mathematics at Cambridge University. During the Second World War he was head of a number of statistical units studying the industrial and economic effects of bombing, and in 1045 he wrote the Brit- ish report on the aftermath of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He has since summed up the devastation he saw there as "civilization face to face with its implications." His wartime experiences led to the subsequent development of his belief in the necessity of humanizing the sciences. A ser- ies of lectures he delivered at Ihe Massachusetts Institute of Technology entitled "Science and Human Values" has since become famous in a book of the same title, and helped initi- ate the great "two cultures" de- bate aimed at reconciling the' growing disparities between sci- ence and the humanities. Explain this one to your dentist Accidents will happen on the film set! Although renewed as a sci- entist, Dr. Bronowski is best known in Britain as a member of the BBC radio and television Brains Trust programs, on which he appeared for a nunir her of years. It was the popu- larity of these series which convinced him that television viewers would enjoy a stimulat- ing experience such as The Ascent of Man. "These pro- grams have the quality of hav- ing a man say what's in his mind, rather than having him spread out all the evidence that goes with he fays. In addition to being a sci- entist and broadcaster, Dr. Bronowski is veil in the literary field. He is a respected authority on Ihe poetry of William Blake, and his play, The Face of Violence, won the Italia Prize for Ihe best drama- tic work broadcast throughout Europe in 1930 and 1951. He now lives and in the United States lie is a Senior Fellow and Director of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in S-an California. Getting a tooth knocked out during a hockey game is a risk hockey players take as a matter of course, especially if they're prone to fighting. But how do you explain to a dentist when you're an actor and you've had a tooth knocked out during a filming session? That's what Bob Park, who plays Hughie Carmody in CBC television's The Beachcombers series, seen each Sunday at 7 p.m., had to explain to his den- tist in Gibsons, B.C., where an unlikely accident took place recently. What happened is that young Juliet Randall, who has taken over the role of Margaret Car- mody in The Beachcombers, bonked Bob Park on the mouth with a saucepan full of water. Not on purpose, mind you it was a pure accident, mixed a little with Juliets zeal to act her part with realism. The CBC film cameras were grinding away at Molly's Reach in Gibsons, the restaurant owrved by Molly Carmcdy, and he scene was a fire in the res- -aurant. It was quite a blaze all part of the script and Vtargaret was to throw water on the flames. Hughie (Bob Park) was standing close to her when she let fly. Zap! Right on the chops. Hughie's front tooth was knock- ed out, an eye tooth. AH acting stopped. Everyone gathered around Hughie to help. There was nothing any cameraman, actor, technician, script assistant or producer could do. It was the dentist or nothing. Someone grabbed Hughie, plunked him and his tooth into a station wagon and drove speedily to the dentist's office. The dentist plunked the. tooth back into Hughie's gum, rV- ed the whole works into place so it wouldn't move and Hughie went back to work this time wearing a hockey face protector so no further damage could be done. Margaret was desolate. No apologies were needed or asked for, however.

He hones he won't lose the tcoth, but he's a solid guy who can take it on the chin, even in an accident. But herein lie the complica- tions of shooting a film series for CBC television. How do you suddenly change a script to al- low for Hugliie's wearing a face protector? Philip K e a 11 e y, executive producer of The Beachcombers caine up with the answer, but it took him all night to do it. He simply re- wrote Uie script and by the next morning, the cameras were ready to roll again for some new scones showing Hughie with has stiff jaw and face pro- tector. Of course, there were the in- evitable jokes about it only hurting when he laughed, but Bob Park carried on with the job, and the episode, called Happy Birthday Molly, will be seen next fall on CBC tele- visic'V slightly changexl from the original script. Exciting female vocalist is guest on Paul Horn Show Freda Payne, the first jazz vocalist to have a million selling hit since Shirley Bas- sey, guest stars on "The Paul Horn Show" Wednesday, May 30 at p.m. Freda Payne .started singing when she was eleven years old, winning talent competi- tions. From there, she easily moved into the first line nightclub circuit. Her first success came with an older audience, but a change in performance s'yle turned on a wider, younger audience. She is one of the world's most exciting female vocalists, with a long list of performing and recording credits. Her first album was released in 1966, after a Eur- opean tour made her one of North America's most sought- after jazz singers. May 23 Movie: The D.
