Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU MARQUIS HOTEL The Lethbridge Herald TELEVISION GUIDE HANNIGAN'S 328-4038 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27 1970 LISTINGS FOR SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28 TO FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4. Family happy on Arizona ranch Dick Van Dyke, Bill Cosby team for comedy special TELESCOPE FEATURES NEWSCASTER Former NBC newscaster Chet Huntley spent several weeks with the CBC's Ken Cavanagh this summer, at the studios in New York and Huntley's Big Sky Ranch in Montana as he retired from broadcasting to head for the clear western skies. CBC -cameras follow Huntley from the city's sky- scrapers to his new life in the wilderness in Telecope '71, Tuesday, Dec. 1, p.m. Chet quits smog to run big ranch Ken Cavanagh describes for- mer NBC news broadcaster Ghet Huntley as "solid and sin- cere, a really believable and honest Cavanagh should know. As host of CBC-TV's Telescope '71 Ken spent nearly two weeks with Huntley when he directed the filming of Good Night David Goodbye Chet the Telescope show to be telecast on CBC-TV Tuesday, Dec. 1 at p.m. on channel 7. The show is an in-depth examination of a man who gave up his position as co-host of NBC television's Huntley- Erinkley report (the national newscast watched by millions) to head for tie open sides of the West and nm a ranch in Montana. According to Cavanagh, 56- year-old Huntley is a man who is as straight forward and be- lievable in person, as he has appeared on the television screen for the last 15 years. In his new venture Huntley runs the acre Big Sky Ranch near Bozeman, Montana which Mes in beautiful, unspoiled coun- try and will soon be the sita of one of the largest sports devel- opments in the United States. Everything in recreation, from skiing, to riding to condomini- um living, will transform the area into a haven for lovers of the outdoors. Telescope watches Huntley as he prepares for and telecasts his last newscast with partner David Brinldey, and chats with him in his office. The cameras go along as the broadcasting veteran leaves the smog of New York for the sunny skies and green slopes of the Montana mountains, where he was raised. He talks about his ca- reer, about the state of democ- racy in the United States today, and in particular about the freedom of spirit engendered by the atmosphere of the West. Peyton Place- star in Corwiu An American actress who is best known for a six-month role ending in a spectacular demise on TV's Peyton Place, Susan Oliver guest stars in the sec- ond episode of the new Corwin series on CBC television, Sun- day, Nov. 29, at 9 p.m. in color on Channel 7. The blonde actress made the newspapers in September, 1967, by doing a solo flight in her single-e n g i n e private plane, from New York to Moscow. hair is a little longer at the neckline and the sideburns are sprouting a bit of gray. But the infectious laugh, the inner warmth and the general .attractiveness of Dick Van Dyke hasn't changed an iota since he forsook net- work television series five years ago. When he was back in Holly- wood to tape his special, Dick Van Dyke Meets BUI Cosby which airs on the CTV Televi- sion Network Saturday Decem- ber 5, p.m. on Channel 13, Van Dyke was frank and hasty to admit he couldn't wait to return to the 180-acre ranch miles outside Phoenix. He moved his entire family there as soon as the Van Dyke series ceased production in 19C5. "I've done a movie each year since, and three other spe- cials. Yes, I know, my master plan called for total retire- ment, but I couldn't afford it." Even superstars have budget- ary problems. "However, I feel I now have the best of all possible worlds. Movies and TV specials when I feel like it, and a series up- coming in 1971 but it will be shot at a film studio just eight miles from the ranch in Ari- zona. "What do we do at night? Well, the last few nights before we came over here, we spent shooting toads. Yes, he repeated to his incredulous in- terviewer. "I made a pond with a water- fall and we get all kinds of ani- mals: chipmunks, porcupines, and toads by the hundreds. They get gigantic, about eight inches across and my dogs bite them; they're poisonous and one of the dogs almost died." He admits his dogs', a Cairn terrier and a poodle, weren't exactly bred for desert living; they don't even have an air- conditioned doghouse; so Van Dyke had to do his own ex- terminating. The ranch, located in a for- mer mining community called; Cave Creek, formerly was a working spread. Its new owner couldn't possibly make it Van is now seeking a herd of cattle Dyke continued. and more horses. "We have only one horse now- he's ac- tually a pinto pony and he fol- lows us around like he's one of the dogs." And what do the "civilian" inhabitants of Cave Creek feel about having a top show busi- ness star living in their midst? "The whole town takes us for granted. It's just great. When the tourists drive out from Phoenix, they won't tell them where we live. They watch over us like we were he says with great satisfaction. And there is a certain child- like quality about Dick Van Dyke which inspires that type of special protection. All clowns have it. The Glen Campbell Goodlime Hour will be pre-empted on this occasion. "When the special first came up, I said if I had my druthers the person I wanted more than anyone else on the show was Bill Van Dyke re- ported.
