Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGf A distinguished Canadian First Person Singular features Pearson memoirs The warmth, wit and diplo-' malic finesse of a remarkable Canadian the late Lester B. Pearson are vividly recalled in a unique CBC television ser- ies entitled First Person Sing- ular Pearson The Mem- oirs of a Prime Minister. In the series of 13 half-hour color films to be telecast Sun- days at 10 p.m. starting May 27, Mr. Pearson reminisces about his life and career from early childhood to his retire- ment from active political life in A crew headed by award- winning CBC producer Camer- on Graham of Ottawa and free- lance writer director Munroe Scott filmed weekly interviews with Mr. Pearson in the study of his Ottawa home over a span of two years during 1970, '71 and '72. The resultant 000 feet of film, was then edit- ed and blended with appropri- ate archival footage, still photos, graphics and a musi- cal score by Herbert Helbig to create a fascinating television account of the life and times of a distinguished Canadian. The title First Person Singu- lar is apt, for the CBC series has no narrator. Lester Pearson himself, with characteristic humor and informality, tells his own story, prompted occasion- ally by off-camera questions from interviewer Ostry. The autobiographical narrative is punctuated with historical film, still photos and graphics se- quences to complement parti- cular incidents and vignettes recalled by Mr. Pearson. LESTER B. PEARSON Di these film memoirs Mr. Pearson reminisces about myr- iad aspects of his private life and distinguished diplomatic and political career: from his birth in Newtonbrook (now part of sprawling Metro Toronto) on April 23, 1897, through his child- hood, school and university days, service in the First World War, leaching career, his DID YOU KNOW?

Throughout his narrative liberally sprink- led with serious moments and anecdotes involving personali- ties of national and internation- al fame Mr. Pearson dis- plays the warm humor for which he was known during his lengthy career in the sendee of his country and the world. The series premiere, Sun- day, May 27, is subtitled Child- hood and Youth. In it Mr. Pearson recalls his boyhood, and the Influence on his b'fe of his parents and grandparents. He recounts how the Pearson family moved about through- out Southern Ontario as his father, a Methodist preacher, was transferred from one par- sonage to another. The frequent moving, he quips, probably ac- counts for the fact that some 19 Ontario communities have laid claim to being the birth- place of Canada's fourteenth prime minister. The second program, June 3, is titled The Undergraduate. It chronicles the teen-aged Lester Pearson's years as a student at Victoria College, University of Toronto, and the emotions lie felt as a young Canadian dur- ing tlie early stages of T h e Great War. Program three, June 10, cov- ers the youthful Lester Pear- son's service to his country as a member of the armed forces in that war, and the profound influence the events of that time had on his later life.

The first immigrants to the Island brought with them, a pioneering spirit that, in many ways, ex- ists to Ibis day. On Wednesday, May 30 at 8 p.m. CBC-TV will present a sa- lute to that spirit in a one- hour color film Song of the Island. Against the background of five original songs, compos- ed and sung by Tom Gallant, are captured the traditions, the feelings and the hopes of its peoole. Though basically a salute to Prin-ce Edward Island in its centennial year, Song of the Island contains no speeches and focuses on no celebrations. It is simply the story of the Island and. its hardy residents, told through, their eyes and in I heir words.
