A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU MARQUIS HOTEL The Letfcbridge Herald TELEVISION GUIDE HANNIGAN'S 328-4038 FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1970 LISTINGS FOR SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17 TO FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23 Lions Teach Cubs Nature's legendary king of beasts is the subject of the Untamed World episode, Lions, to be telecast on the CTV Television Network on Sunday, October 18, 7:00 - 7:30 p.m. on Channel 13, when we travel to the vast plains of Africa for a look at the king of the cat family. Because of his superior strength, unyielding courage and intelligence, the lion is treated with the utmost respect by all other creatures - including man. They are extremely clever animals, subject to individual temperament and character, and their mood can change in a second. On this program Untamed World looks at the growth and training of the cubs and life within the pride, A pride usually consists of Several females and their cubs accompanied by one or two adult males and a few, older barren females. For the first 18 months of their life, the cubs ere unable to fend for themselves and mother must feed, groom and protect them while they are learning the art of survival. Film shows the cubs learning the lions' signals of communication and watching Che females hunt for food. Lions cannot naturally hunt or kill and they must be taught - an arduous task for the cubs as they must learn the habits and movements of their prey before they can become successful hunters. Cubs must even learn how to eat the dead animal and film shows the immature cubs as they make their vain efforts to gnaw their way into the carcass, not knowing where to start first. Once, the Iion's domain spread throughout India, the Middle Bast and parts of Europe and as far afield as the Balkan Islands but today a mere handful exist outside Africa. Now they are confined almost exclusively to parts of East Africa . . the last stronghold for the king of beasts.

No Relation Anne Archer, daughter of actress Marjorie Lord, will make bar television debut this fall in a role on Hawaii Five-O. Miss Archer's mother, incidentally, is no relation to Hawaii Five-0 Star Jack Lord. Does the United States really need Canada's water? What would large scale diversion of Canada's rivers do to our country politically, economically and ecologically? These and other important questions are asked in CBC-lV's Tuesday Night one-hour color film documentary about Canadian-U.S. water relations, on Tuesday, October 20 at 10 p.m. on channel 7. It is titled, Canada's Water - For Sale? Through interviews with politicians and resource experts and film shot on many locations throughout North Ameri- ca, the program offers facts and opinion about the problems of water distribution on the North American continent. It is written, produced and directed by Dick Bocking at CBC Vancouver. Water, or the lack of it in many areas of the world, has always been the source of bitter dispute. Canada has plenty of fresh water - just look at a map; all those mighty rivers and multitude of lakes. But most people look at a map of North America from a vertical perspective and tend to think that all that water in the north- em part of the continent eventually flows south. Not true, says this documentary. Most of Canada's great rivers either flow north or do not cross the 49th parallel. The Columbia is one big exception - a river which crosses from British Columbia, flows through the states of Washington and Oregon then empties into the sea at Astoria, Oregon. It empties 186,000,000 acre feet (one acre foot equals one acre of water CANADA'S Concluded on Page 2 Farm Boy At Heart TORONTO (CP) - Ice's had 34 hectic years in show busi-n c s s, but actor-satirist-playwright Don Harron is really a country boy at heart. "Maybe I'm really Charlie Farquharson," he said of the country comic he created for Spring Thaw 1950, and now seen on television's Hce Haw show. "Now I'm reading country almanacs," Harron added. "I'm going to build a house in the country five miles from where my mother was bom." But Harron, 45. who married singer Catherine McKinnon last year, isn't finished with the entertainment world yet. Some day he'd like to do a conceit tour with his wife-she'd sing and he'd provide the satire. Meanwhile, he still haat farmer Charlie, who has kept his income in the $30,000-a-year range. "I adore Hee Haw. I love digging up material for it and I love to sneak in the names of my friends. "I'm the carpetbagger from the North. ..." , TORONTO IS FRUMPY Charlie is a direct steal from the Ontario farmers for whom Harron worked when he was young. "The farmer mi^ht be a nv flection of myself," he said. "I guess I'm not going to make it as a sophistocate. Toronto is still a frumpy town and I lova it- "It's a kind of town wliich ha* its slip showing." Harron, who lived outside of Canada from 1956 to 1967, mainly playing on Broadway, presented a brief to the Canadian Radio-Television Commission hearings in Ottawa when the commission was discussing, among other things, how much Canadian content there should be in CBC programs. Said Harron: "I still make most of my living outside the country, but I've been there and I don't want to go back permanently. I did more for CBC when I was in Hollywood than I do now that I'm living in Toronto."
