"It's one of the things I've tried to show in the he said in an interview. "That sheer weight of time, like a long tunnel without an end, filled with the pressures and frustrations of never get- ting anything when you want it." He said a prispner's life is so different that he did not know how to cross the street when he returned to Toronto once after three years. in prison. Mr. Madden went to train- ing school after his first con- viction when he was 13, and was later in and out of prison, usually for burglary. When first sentenced to a peniten- tiary 10 years ago, he volunteered to edit the prison's magazine. He later wrote his first play, Criminal Record, about courts, which prisoners produced in prison. The National Film Board shot a documentary around the play, and among the crew was "Peter Duffy, founder of the Beggar's Workshop, an amateur company performing The Night No One Yelled.

With the action of the film largely in Europe, the U.S. and Eastern Canada, the west coast input into the film seems an anomaly. But that is the way the new decentralizing policy of CBC production works: the Vancouver staff had the idea, the staff and the facilities 'for the show, so CBC Van- couver did the work. Vickers, a native of Prince Albert, Sask., now has a private estate in the Caledon Hills northwest of Toronto, but spends most of his time in the great opera houses of England and Europe. Scenes from a London production of Fidelio, Beethoven's only opera, from a Montreal production of Verdi's Otello, and from a New York production of Ben- jamin Britten's Peter Grimes all starring Vickers are included in the documentary. Vickers' home on a park-like farm near Toronto is his escape from the public eye, and Vickers was reluctant to have much of his life there shown in the documentary. The film will be shown on both the English and French networks of CBC-TV, in a joint financial deal between the two networks under which the French side will produce Wagner's Tristan and Isolde for both networks next year. Airline staff to be reduced LONDON (AP? Britain's biggest privately-owned air- line announced today it will lay off 827 of its employees and suspend its scheduled North Atlantic flights from Nov. 1. British Caledonian blamed rising costs, especially of fad, and a drop in passengers, which has affected other air- lines, for its difficulties. The personnel cuts include five company directors, 40 pi- lots and more than 200 mem- bers of the cabin staff and engineering and maintenance worKeis New arts council in B.C. urged BURNABY, B.C. (CP) A new provincial government arts council, which in form might become an example to provincial governments elsewhere in the country, should- be organized on an interim basis by the end of this year, says its chief proponent. Nini Baird, director of Simon Fraser University's centre for communications and the arts, says 17 represen- tatives of various disciplines in the arts and the general community, are being invited to serve on the council until permanent representatives can be elected. The important word in that statement is that when it is es- tablished on a permanent basis, most of the members of .the will advise on the disbursement of provin- cial be elected. The central council will, in fact, be representative of re- gional councils scattered throughout the province. Each of the regional councils will have perhaps six elected representatives, plus two ap- pointed by the provincial government. Ms says she prefers to be called Nini Baird rather than Miss or in an interview she believes this high proportion of elected representatives is not parallelled anywhere else in the country. DONE QUICKLY also said remarkable speed with which the provincial government has moved to set up the council, following its first serious proposal less than two years ago, reflects the NDP provin- cial government's sensitivity to the demands of the artistic community. Ms. Baird is a member of the Canada Council, which dis- burses federal funds to the arts and humanities, and of the Canadian Conference of the Arts which speaks to governments for the artistic world She came here from Seattle soon after. Simon Fraser University was found- ed less than 10 years ago to head its fine and performing arts service. The CCA began pressuring governments particularly provincial and municipal ad- year to set up arts councils and give ar- tists a voice in the manage- ment of their own affairs. In April, 1973, the B.C. govern- ment committed itself to ac- tive support of the arts. TREASURY SUPPORT This was followed by a pro- vincial government statement in April this year setting out a plan by which the provincial treasury would support regional and provincial coun- cils set up to represent artists of all kinds, and make the arts accessible to their com- munities. Ms Baird was appointed provincial animateur to follow through. She visited and held meetings in more than 30 com- munities in the province, pro- ducing a report which was re- leased last month suggesting an immediate start by ap- pointing an interim council. By early next year, she says, elected councils should be formed Russians lose taste for bread MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union's bread supply is coming up a million tons short this year But the Bread Com- missar says that is all right because Soviet consumers "are losing their appetite for it anyway There is a trend toward more foods such as meat and vegetables, and the Soviet consumer is enriching his diet with more said Voldemar Lein, Minister of Food Industry. There is a greater demand for variety, he said. The famous Russian black bread, cherny khleb, is losing a bit of its mystical grip on the northern populace, and Lein told a news conference that rather than plain white bread, "the people want more rolls and buns."
