MARION STAR Friday, July 18, 1969 Apollo 11 on All I Television Networks Sunday Noon to Monday at 6 p.m. Television and Radio By CECIL SMITH Can You Separate TV From Environment? a letter from producer of theatrical Hollywood whom I do which poses an intriguing question: Can television be properly appraised apart from the environment in function? Bow en's thoughtful letter is con- Cecil Smith Cecil Smith There's Bowen, a films in not know room screening. cerned with critics of this wind-blown theater, particularly in light of the current move to invite reviewers to see programs and comment on them in advance. "It is possible," writes Bowen, "under typical review conditions to evaluate the effect of any program accurately in terms of how it will look on the boob tube?" He explains: "I don't work in TV, but, thanks to a schedule mixup, I got to a lab to check an answer print of one of my pictures just as they were starting through a I don't watch 'Bonanza'; don't especially like But this show, up on a big screen, clear and bright, with good sound, in a screening environment, with a small audience, with no distractions, no kids.

no beer handy, no toilet 20 feet away, no commercials this thing hooked me. "Later I made a special point of catching that episode on the set at home. Little reaction; what I did feel I could trace to a recollection of that projection "THIS LEADS to another point," Bowen went on. "Everyone decries the quality of the staple TV dramatic show. Still, I wonder: To be even moderately effective under the really adverse conditions of most home viewing, don't these shows have to be considerably better.

point for point, than their theatrical equivalent viewed under far better conditions? "I've reached the conclusion that a lot of what people take for granted on TV is really a lot better, than it's given credit for. Some shows mind "The Wild Wild 'Mod Squad' and some of the early 'Invaders' that, in theaters, would have been real grabbers. "PERHAPS what all this means," writes Bowen, "is that no idea to be expressed, or the summation of technique emplayed to express it, is independent of the environment of the recipient. "Just as music doesn't exist until it is played and heard, in real time, by a listener, so does a film (or tape) not really come into existence until a mind receives its message. Lots has been written on the Medinow maybe it's time to look at the environment in which it must function." Which leads Bowen to the conclusion that networks that refuse to preview their shows may be "losing more than they know their likelihood in getting good grades (from critics) in advance showings must be much greater than if they rely on on-the-air I'M NOT SURE 1.

go along with Bowen's conclusions. It seems to me a critic has the obligation to see a work to be reviewed under the best possible conditions; thus, a movie reviewer does not see films amid popcorn-gulping teen-agers and fat women stepping on his feet; a book critic does not take into account reading the book in bad light on a swaying train. Nor do I feel the image of the beer-swilling pop and the quarreling kids grouped around the living room set is as representative of television as it once was. The two set and threehousehold becoming as common as the two-car family. which is the selective, reason So is viewer, that advance reviews of television programs can offer the sort of service that book reviews, play reviews, movie reviews and the like provide SO that one can decide whether to spend that precious time, on it.

FURTHERMORE, a work of art, I believe, transcends its environment. Thus, "Citizen Kane" on television, festooned with commercials. is still a masterpiece; the Lisa painted on an ash can still would enthrall. Though works of art in television are as rare as they are anywhere else, it would be of value for people to know when one happens. Saturday Night Programs Ch.

$1. Development Chief Lashes At Tax Critics COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio Development Director F. P. Neuenschwander branded as "completely and obviously, false" a recent report by Cleveland economists critical of Ohio's tax system, government services and industrial growth. In response Thursday to the charge that the state ranks low nationally in manufacturing "For the Neuenschwander, Ohio growth, said has led the nation in manufacturing expansion, capital investment job opportunities."
