Scholastic's TV series, beginning today on HBO, is a less balanced mix, judging by the debut episode, "A Picture of Freedom." Presented with little sense of time passing and with sketchily observed characters, it's a spoon-fed version of Patricia C. McKissack's fictionalized diary of 12-year-old Clotee Henley, a slave in 1859 Virginia, who becomes a conductor on the Underground Railroad. Sweet-faced sprite Shadia Simmons offers a game performance as Clotee, who has surreptitiously done the forbidden learned to read and to cherish the word ''freedom" as she fans the young son of her harsh white owner (Richard Sali) during his lessons with a tutor (Mark Ellis). The tutor knows her secret, and Clotee soon learns his: He is an abolitionist, helping slaves to freedom. When a friend of Clotee's is cruelly whipped and told he'll be sold away from his sweetheart, the tutor's effort to help leads to his exposure, and Clotee pledges to take his place, postponing her own chance at freedom. In the book, readers closely identify with Clotee as author McKissack vividly draws them into the young heroine's life, time and place; the half-hour teleplay by Ron Stacker Thompson and Ashley Tyler, directed by Helaine Head, is too unlayered and rushed to capture that intimacy. "Dear America: A Picture of Freedom," HBO, tonight at 7:30. (Repeats Friday, noon; Monday, 3 p.m.; March 27, 11:30 a.m.; March 30, 6:30 a.m.; April 4, 5 p.m.) The network has rated it TV-Y7 (suitable for children older than 7). OPENINGS PopRock Banyan (Whisky, 8901 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 310 652-4202).

L.A. rock fixture Tito Larriva returns with an album titled "Hungry Sally and Other Killer Lullabies."

One of the finest bop-based trumpeters in the L.A. area, Saunders leads his quartet through straight-ahead standards. 9 p.m. Music Clara Novakova and Jean-Bernard Marie (Bing Theater, L.A. County Museum of Art, 5905 Wil-shire Blvd., 323 857-6010).

Pianist Skanavi plays music by Chopin, Bach, Carl Vine and Handel. 8 p.m. Colburn's Chen Returns for Powerful Show Music Review By RICHARD S. GINELL SPECIAL TO THE TIMES After her studies at the Col-burn School of Performing Arts in the 1980s, pianist Wendy Chen went on to win a series of competition prizes in the 1990s and is waving the contrasting flags of Mozart and Rachmaninoff in the concerto wars. So it was as a Distinguished Alumnus that Chen returned to her alma mater Sunday albeit a relocated alma mater: the Zipper Concert Hall in the school's new downtown facility. Chen is technically endowed to do just about anything she wants on a keyboard, although her tendency to clamp down on the damper pedal and the bass-heavy, hollow sound of the Fazioli piano on hand sometimes obscured a lot of detail. She wasn't afraid to challenge the PC period-instrument movement with her thoughtful, brilliantly controlled renditions of Bu-soni's thickened, Romanticized piano arrangements of three J.S. Bach ChoralePreludes. She drifted impressionistically through the Chopin Andante spianato, creating lovely colonstic effects in the right hand while blurring the bass, and the succeeding Grande Polonaise had a relaxed, confident power. Chen's ability to throw an . at tractive silky veil over the piano's tone served her well in her rendi tions of four nostalgic sonic paintings from Janacek's "On an Over grown Path," a naive Czech equivalent of MacDowell's minia tures. She then attacked Rachma ninoffs Sonata No. 2 with fearless bravado, displaying plenty of temperament, drifting delicacy and a good feeling for architecture though the details of the thunder ing passages often vanished in a blurred if undeniably exciting bank of sound. Her limpid encore was a transcription of the Melodie from Gluck's "Orfeo ed Euridice. Easier,' 'Schindler's List' Help NBC Register Win With a number of popular programs in reruns last week, an original episode of NBC's "Fra-sier" climbed to the top of the ratings heap, based on results issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. NBC also posted solid ratings a week before the Academy Awards by sending an Oscar winner, "Schindler's List," starring Liam Neeson, into battle Sunday, despite the fact the film attracted less than half the audience that tuned in for its initial broadcast two years ago. Early-round coverage of the NCAA basketball tournament on Thursday, Friday and Saturday helped CBS score its second-best overall rating National Nielsen Viewership this season with male viewers, while the network's "Walker, Texas Ranger" spinoff, "Sons of Thunder," dipped more than 30 compared to its premiere. ABC also experienced a setback with the new drama "Strange World," which aired Monday and Tuesday, faring worse than "NYPD Blue" reruns in the latter slot. A similar performance this week will likely earn the show an early hook. UPN's telecast of the "TV Academy Hall of Fame" ceremony had the dubious distinction of ranking dead last among the week's network offeringswell below ratings for that network's new Friday series, "America's Greatest Pets." BRIAN LOWRY Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (March 8-14) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are based on the average number of people who watched a program from start to finish. Nielsen estimates that there are 256.6 million potential U.S. viewers age 2 and older.
