They wrote their own vows, in keep- ing with the wilderness setting and the bride wore a silk man- tle made of a parachute. It was a strange and touching cere- mony. The couple were to be married in reality when they got back to the "United States.'' JOHN AND JANET FOSTER Attitude change towards Empire and its defence Program eight in the CTV Television Network's Sunday evening documentary series "The British Empire" examines the period between 1902, the year of the Coronation of Ed- ward VII, and the end of the First World War.

RISK OF GERMANY However, British educational and industrial development, lag- ged seriously behind the new state of Imperial Germairy. The German challenge (the chal- lenge of the program's title) led to radical reforms in t h e Royal Navy and the Army. On August 3, 1914, German forces violated Belgium's neut- rality and the following day Britain, on behalf ol the Em- pire, declared war on the Ger- man aggressors. The old Imperial dream had come true as the Empire acted as a single collective power, a super state under British lead- ers hip. When Armistice Day came, crowds celebrated throughout the Empire and ia Britain it was a day of triumph and of new hope. Yet while the people cheered their victory, the Brit- ish Empire stood at the turning point of its destiny. On Sunday, November 26, pro- gram nine in the series exam- ines the British colonization of Australia and the development of the Australian character in "Beyond The Black Stump."
