i in 01 I i:ni k jm kn i, Tii !ld , January 12. 19o2 A-13 eievision Moyers ' Series Begins Tonight HOLLYWOOD More by accident than bv grand design, January looks to be a banner month for public television; it certainly doesn't look very bannerry for anything else, except maybe influenza and frostbite. Public TV has long suffered from a creative frostbite of its own, but this month will see the introduction of more auspicious new programming than PBS has ever unveiled in such a brief period. The undisputed highlights are the premieres of "Creativity With Bill Moyers" (already airing in many cities); "Life On Earth," a magnificently photographed nature series from England; and "American Playhouse," a 25-week anthology that PBS calls "the most ambitious drama series in public television history." "Creativity" is the last public TV project Moyers completed before bounding back to CBS to be the Eric Sevareid (though definitely not the Eric Sobersides) of the '80s. His tick will make "Creativity" tick as well. The first prog ram, tonight (at 9 on Albuquerque's. KNME-TV 5), accompanies black poet Maya Angelou on a moving journey back to the small town in southwest Arkansas where she grew up; some memories were painful, some were hallowed, and all contributed to her need and talent for self-expression in later life. Angelou, who had a small role in the ABC TV version of "Roots," recalled childhood pleasures like discovering Shakespeare for herself ("I couldn't believe it that a white man could write so musically!") and such anguish as being jeered while walking through the white part of town and, later, the terrible trauma of rape. Another Moyers show (Feb. 2 at 9:30 p a) takes a sprigh-tlier look at another aspect of creativity; the inventor, whom Moyers calls "a very special breed." Harold Black, whose "negative feedback brainstorm" make long-distance phone calls possible, recalls euphoricaliy of his great moment, "I discovered it in a flash! I'd been working on it for six weeks, but the idea came to me in a flash!" Moyers asks, "What will be commonplace 20 years from now because some inventor is having a creative flash at this very moment?" Other inventions persued range from the sublime a machine to breathe for infants with respiratory arrest syndrome to the patented ridiculous, l'ke a spill-proof meatball sandwich. About the only complaint one could make of this show is the cutesy-wutesy acting troupe that pops up to illustrate various pivotal inventions, and the fact that in the studio portions, when he is on camera, Moyers is called upon to move and waltz and sashay about the room, no doubt in the interest of visual variety. Somebody should bolt old Bill to the studio floor so we can listen to what he's saying. Tom Shales is the Washington Post's syndicated TV columnist. KLKK-TV For About By WILL HOFFMAN Journal TV Editor A sale is pending for Albuquerque's first independent TV station, KLKK-TV, Channel 23. "There is nothing in a con-tract yet" but the sale is pending, said Greg Merrill of Logan, Utah, a represent ative of Chapman and Co. of Atlanta, brokers who have listed the station for sale. Neither the owner, Grants businessman Eddie Pena, nor the prospective buyer, Malcolm I. Glazer and Associates of Rochester, N.Y., could be reached for comment. Merrill decline to give details of the sale until it is completed. However, sources close to the station said the asking price is about $7 million. They also said Glazer plans to invest in the station to improve it and would take over operation 40 to 60 days after the sale is completed. Pena recently confirmed that he had placed the station on the market. Milt Ledet, the station manager until he was fired Dec. 13, said a sale of the station for $7 million was pending.

In 1978, he began buying out the station from its previous owners, Spanish Television of New Mexico The station began broadcasting in 1975 as KMXN-TV, with studio and transmitter at the Western Bank Building.

HOUSE: "The Shady Hill Kidnapping." (Premiere). Bravo to PBS for bringing original plays back to weekly TV. For the next 25 weeks, this ambitious series will present original works, adaptations of Broadway and off-Broadway plays and a miniseries which viewers should welcome with open arms. The premiere selection, a teleplay by John Cheever, takes a satirical look at a suburban family involved in what they think is a kidnapping of a 5-year-old boy. Cheever refines the ingredients of a routine sitcom with sophistication and wit. There's one false note Cheever's introduction of commercial interruptions hawking a youth elixir. All in all, however, this marks an auspicious beginning of a promising series. (8 p.m. Channel 5). O MB 1 y. A,buH .rr..- O K N M K 1 ' Q KOAT -TV (D K',(,M TV (QKGSU TV.
