Olympic shoivs add spice to dreary summer season The quadrennial telecast of the O l y m p i a d has brought a certain freshness to the stale, dreary, summer television season of repeats and underfinanced variety shows. ABC has stinted neither time, manpower nor expense to make the Olympics THE ABC sports special of the year. With a five hour time difference between Munich, the slt« of the Olympics, and the east coast of the United States not much of the proceedings are brought to television viewers live except on the weekends. However I, for one, think the three or three and a half hour recap- ituatlons In the evenings are preferable to what live coverage we've had so far. Last Sunday afternoon, for instance, there seemed to be a paucity of events happening while the ABC live telecast was going on and, as a result, the programmers were stuck for something to show. They gave us more than a half hour of the volleyball competition--a sport which doesn't exactly make the old adrenalin flow. It was almost as boring as the Republican National Convention. In the night shows, on the other hand, the television producers are able to choose from tapes shot of all events that went on during the day and thus provide a good deal of variety and action. ABC spent several million dollars for ite coverage and In spite of th* fact that all commercial periods were sold for an impressive price, tb« network says they'll probably low money. The reason, mainly, is that ABC hoped the FCC would ease its time ruling and allow them to program an extra hour of Olympic coverage each night. (You'll remember that under an FCC regulation that went into effect this year, the networks were cut back on the amount of time they can use on local stations.) But the FCC said SUNDAY SOLO no and so ABC didn't get the commerical m o n e y they'd hoped to get with that extra 60 minutes. I think the FCC was very shortsighted in this. It should be obvious by this time that the time regulation, which was supposed to stimulate more original programming by local stations, hasn't worked. All that's happened is that we've been getting a steady diet of old shows ("I Dream of Jeannie") or cheap jack syndicated features ("What's My Line?"). At least, with the networks, we were getting new shows. But the FCC refuses to concede error and the time- restriction goes on. · * * A word about another summer special: The telecast of the Italian made "Life of Leonardo da Vinci" deserves high marks for effort but a slightly lower grade for execution. In the ABC show on Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, a little bit of tinkering with history was done from time to time. Nobody really minded. But on the show about Leonardo, every time the slightest deviation from the known facts--which are scarce--occurs the narrator feels called upon to tell us, "Of course, we don't know if it happend thin way..." So they don't know. So go ahead and do it anyway without making excuses. So long as they don't stretch the truth completely out of line. And a pox, too, on whoever had th« idea of having the narrator, in modern clothing, keep wandering through the 15th century action--and even, sometimes, take a hand. Narration should, I think, simply have been voice over--audio but no video. Its' still a good series, though.
