But in 1929 a frustrated actor named James A. FitzPatrick began producing them entertainingly for a mass movie market.

The format FitzPatrick fath- ered survives today in three widely syndicated American weekly television shows: Passports to Adven- ture, starring as narrators and principals the handsome Linker family; Hal, his Icelandic-born wife Halla and their son David, who estimate they've travelled nearly a million miles to 133 countries. syndicated Animals, Action and Adventure and CBS Sunday show, Animal World, of Bill Burrud, 45, a hearty, one- time child movie actor who now stresses animals in a bid for the younger audience. to Travel, produced and narrated by Hal Sawyer, onetime TV announcer. Travelling, he estimates, miles a year with his camera, he also conducts tours and oper- ates a Hollywood travel agency. LEAD FIELD Knowledgeable sources say these shows, except for a few local programs and such cost- lier, less-frequent specials as Capt. Jacques Cousteau's under- sea explorations, NBC's Wild Kingdom and CBS's National Geographic studies are the cur- rent big three in the travel-ad- venture field. Traveloguers are a tireless breed who face freezing, sun- stroke, drowning, tarantulas, lions and elephants to bring ex- otic thrills to armchair adven- turers. They found their calling for a variety of reasons. Fitz- Patrick turned to producing when he got nowhere as an actor. Burrud, recalling his child- hood exploits in movies, iw travel movies as a means to get back in front of a camera. Linker was a travel lecturer for whom TV was a natural pro- gression. Linker, a SOish native of New York City, trained for the diplo- matic service, discovered a pub- lic-speaking gift in college and served as a navy intelligence and briefing officer at Iwo Jima and Okinawa. "It seemed natural after the war to become a travel lec- he says. STARTED IN FILMS The husky Burrud, a Holly- wood native, acted in films be- tween ages eight and 14.

In 17 years since that series, OpenRoad, Burrud has produced a raft of travel-adven- ture packages including Wan- derlust, Vagabond, True Adven- ture and The American West. Sawyer, like Linker, SOish and born in New York City, was an officer on passenger ships be- fore turning TV announcer for Eddie Cantor, Donald O'Donnor and others. Back in the travel field with his own TV show, he globetrots with his camera be- cause: "You can't tell people about Johannesburg based on a trip you made 15 years ago."

She went to "Jim" McPherson of Cochrane, one of who supply fresh milk that goes into the making of Alpha dairy products. He told her: "We have eighty-seven head of good pure-bred cows on first-rate grazing land. The herds get inspected regularly by the government health department.
