M GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Thurs., Keb. 26,1976 Lindbergh story begins with newsreels By JAY SIIARBUTT AP Television Writer NEW YORK (API- An eng. rossing dramatization ol the kidnapping and murder of Charles A. Lindbergh's infant son nearly 44 years ago is coming up tonight on NBC. It stars Cliff De Young as Lindbergh, Sian Barbara Allen as his wife, and Anthony Hopkins, who does a brilliant job as Bruno Hauptmann, the German-born carpenter who died in New Jersey's electric chair on April 3,1936, for the kidnap- murder of the child. Entitled "The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case." this three-hour show begins with newsreel clips of Lindbergh's historic flight in 1927 from New York to Paris and the adulation and honors it brought him. Then the actors take over, depicting the tragedy fame brought the Lindberghs on a stormy winter night in 1932, when their first-born child was kidnapped from their new home near Hopewell, N.J. With the straightforwardness of a Police Gazette account, dramatist J. P. Miller recreates the case, using a sequence- of-cvents approach that starts with the horrified discovery by the family nurse that the child is missing. The state police are summoned, followed by hordes of noisy, excited reporters trampling over whatever evidence may lie in the grounds around the Lindbergh home. One even scrambles up a ladder to peer in the room from which the child was kidnapped, reminding me of Fred Allen's acid opinion that most reporters only think of humans as stories wrapped in skin. The drama moves from scene to scene with workmanlike precision, telling the stories of major and minor figures in the tragedy and their place in it. The character sketches are largely one-dimensional -- the show has 118 .speaking roles, which tends to reduce character development -- but good editing and taut direction help keep the program absorbing throughout. Hauptman's capture by New York police comes relatively late in the show. When he goes on trial in New Jersey, the scenes outside the courtroom are pure circus. A radio reporter broadcasts news of the trial from his battle station in a courthouse men's room. Downstairs, a lady hawks "kidnap buttons" to commemorate the trial. Lindbergh arrives at the court- house, gets a rousing cheer, has a coat button snipped off by a souvenir freak. At night, the mob remains outside in the street, within earshot of Hauptmann's cell, chanting "Kill Hauptmann I Kill Hauptmann!" He's convicted and twice granted stays of execution. When he's finally put in the electric chair at the state prison, one impatient citizen in a crowd outside the prison still shouts at a guard: "Hey, what the hell's going on here? You gonna fry him or not?" Although the program loses some impact by De Young's curiously wooden portrayal of Lindbergh, "The Lindberg Kidnapping Case" is still strong, above average TV fare, fairly faithful to'the sad facts of the A/.H. primary cliff hanger, still dull By JOAN HANAUEIl UPI Television Writer NEW YORK (UPI) --There were almost enough television network employes in New Hampshire last night to have swung the vote in the Republican primary, and some of them had been there almost long enough to qualify for a ballot. From a television point of view, the time and labor, the expensive personnel and equipment, all ended up producing a giant yawn. The results in the Democratic primary, with Jimmy Carter, Morris Udall and Birch Bayh in one-two-three order, was predicted and therefore without excitement. On the Republican side, the contest remained too close for the networks to call by Thorsday evening p.m. 6:30-2 Adam-12 4 Let'sMakeaDeal 5 Barney Miller 6 Colorado Outdoors 7 Don Adams 7:00--2 Movie 4 Movie 5-7 Waltons 0 Esta Semana 9 Welcome Bauk, Koller 7:30--0 Book Beat 9 Barney Miller 8:00-5-8 St. of San.

The trouble might lie in frustrated expectations. Backin 1952, when New Hampshire's presidential primary began, the state had its lake country as a summer attraction, the falling leaves in autumn, winter skiing and, as a harbinger of spring, the first preference primary of the presidential election year. By 1976, it had ballooned into an affair covered over a period of months by the three television networks and the pencil press. Last night N'BC estimated it had about 140 persons working in New Hampshire, ABC had 125 and CBS 120. Among these, of course, were such top talent as Walter Cronkite, John Chancellor and Harry Reasoner, with a supporting cast of top broadcasters. It took a combined staff of almost 400 people to let the nation know that immediately past midnight on the morning of Feb. 24, the 25 voters of Dixville Notch, N.H., cast their ballots - Gerald Ford 11, Ronald Reagan 4 on the Republican side, with the town's 10 Democrats giving Jimmy Carter six votes, with one each to four other contenders. When it came to calling the statewide results, -ABC called the Democratic contest for Carter at 7:50 p.m. Eastern time, on its radio network, even though all the polls didn't close until 8. It couldn't do the same on television at that hour because network time doesn't begin until 8 p.m., with affiliates on local access until then. ABC called Carter on television at 8:05 p.m., Eastern time. ' The call was made with only 11 per cent of the New Hampshire precincts reporting, but an ABC spokesman said 33 per cent of their key precincts were in at that time. CBS didn't give the race to Carter until 8:40 p.m., with NBC coming In at 8:50 p.m. NBC had scheduled more primary news for its 8:57 nightly news "Update" and all three networks presented half- hour special reports at 11:30 p.m., but there were few interruptions of regularly scheduled programming -- not even the distraction of that ribbon of print the news departments sometimes thread along the bottom of the screen. Apparently the conventional wisdom was that the Democrats had just began to fight -among themselves, anyway -and the focus of interest lay with the Republicans, whose contest was too tight to predict. The ten top-rated network television programs for the week ending Feb. 22, according to the A.C. Nielsen Co., were: 1: "Six Million Dollar Man;" 2: "All In The Family;" 3: "Rich Man, Poor Man;" 4: "Bionic Woman;" 5: "Wonderful World of Disney;" 6: "Welcome Back, Kotter;" 7: "Starsky and Hutch;" 8: "Streets of San Francisco;" 9: "Happy Days;" 10: "Baretta."
