Sports PLAYOFF TIME AGAIN! Playoff time is, in the words of Dickens’ Tale of Two Cities, the best of times and the worst of times—the best for pro basketball and hockey fans, but ulcer time for HBO schedule makers. In April and May, HBO viewers will see playoff action in the National Basketball Association, the American Basketball Association, the National Hockey League and possibly the World Hockey Association. Scheduling playoff games in advance is impossible and will mean replacement at times of programs listed in this entertainment guide. The printed schedule has been planned to minimize inconvenience from substitutions. Schedule changes will be announced hourly during the day on the HBO upcoming programs channel and immediately before a replacement is to be made. Pleasing sports fans is complicated by many things. Conflicts with commercial TV, and in some cases the territorial rights of local teams, must be avoided. Teams qualifying for the playoffs, pairings and home court advantages depend on regular season standings. Finally, each elimination series could end in three or four games, or go a five- or seven-game limit. Then on to the next round, and more of the same! April on Home Box Office also will offer a live heavyweight boxing card from the Nassau Coliseum on April 4, with unbeaten Duane Bobick meeting Terry Hinke and Rodney Bobick, Duane’s younger brother, facing Mac Foster. For sports history buffs, “Greatest Fights of the Century" looks at middleweight and heavyweight classics, and an exciting new series, “Greatest Sports Legends’* covers the careers of Mickey Mantle, Frank Gifford, Bob Cousy, Stan Musial, Jesse Owens, Jimmy Demaret, Eddie Arcaro, Elgin Baylor and Ollie Matson. (Some of these specials could be pre-empted by playoff games but will be seen later.) P.S. A busy summer sports schedule on HBO will be ushered in by the World Team Tennis, featuring Billie Jean King and the New York Sets, and HBO’s third summer of Professional Bowlers Association tournaments. HBO Specials TWENTY YEARS OF ROCK...THE VISUAL ARTS & TRAVEL Bring back six of the 1950s most popular rock groups for a special performance, and the result is a memorable music experience. “Twenty Years of Rock and Roll’*, on the Home Box Office network in April. The Five Satins, The Skyiiners, Brooklyn Bridge, The Coasters, The Drifters and Tony Williams and The New Platters were videotaped by HBO and Barmann’s Concerts and Productions in concert at the packed 12,000-seat Rockland County Community College arena. Each group has had at least one million-record seller, and with dozens of hits from which to select, pro-ducer-director Drew Cummings has put together a program to carry HBO viewers from the early days of rock to the midst of the current scene. Favorites include “Poison Ivy” and “Charlie Brown’’ by the Coasters, “In the Still of the Night” by The Five Satins, The Platters’ “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” and The Drifters’ “Under the Boardwalk”. Interspersed throughout the musical feast are interviews with the performers by oldies authority and show m.c. Day Cole. “Twenty Years of Rock and Roll” bows on HBO on April 13, with a repeat midnight show on April 25. A fitting tone will be set by American Graffiti, HBO’s April 5-11 premiere movie, which uses 40 rock hits of the ’50s and early ’60s to set its mood. Also making it a big month for rock devotees, “Celebration IV”, another in the continuing HBO series. features the classic rock group. Emerson, Lake and Palmer. All that’s only one part of HBO’s noteworthy special programming for April: The Artist's Eye — a series on lives, philosophy and works of the world’s great painters, sculptors and architects begins April 10 with internationally-known sculptor Jacques Lipchitz, follows with Renaissance master Giotto. Continuing host is artist, critic and TV personality Russell Connor. Venture — is “travel” with a difference premiering on April 12.

Man and role finally came together in Harry and Tonto, a film about a 72-year-old wanderer and his pet cat. This Spring, his peers gave Carney their highest accolade, the Motion Picture Academy’s Oscar as Best Actor of 1974. Harry and Tonto, premiering June 15, is a standout in the month's Home Box Office schedule. Bitter, tender, sad and funny in turn, the film is laden with insights—as well as salty language and occasional actions to match, which gained it an “R” rating. Animallegory—June is a rewarding month for Home Box Office movie buffs who may have thought basketball and hockey playoffs would never end. Worthy of special notice is Animal Farm, the first truly adult cartoon when produced 20 years ago. A team of 100 artists worked for three years to make the film, and more than 300,000 color drawings were used in the final print. True to George Orwell’s 1946 political fable, the film remains fresh and meaningful today—an unusual motion picture experience conveying different levels of meaning to all ages. Matinee Time—Beginning July 4, Home Box Office will present additional motion picture programming every Wednesday afternoon at 3 p.m. and Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. Premiere of the “HBO Friday Matinee” series on July 4 will be Peter Bogdanovich's 1930s-type musical, At Long Last Love, starring Burt Reynolds, Cybill Shepherd and Madeline Kahn and featuring 16 Cole Porter songs.

HBO SPECIKLS BIRTHDAY TIME IN THE -HATTIES It has been a full year since HBO’s children’s program, “Martha’s Attic”, first began capturing the attention of young viewers. So, naturally, since everyone loves birthday parties, Martha Lewis Lambert is going to be throwing one in her Attic during the first week in September on HBO. “Martha’s Attic” is produced by HBO especially for the four-to eight-year-old children’s group. The series has been acclaimed as the only series of its kind produced in the cable industry and approved by critical bodies such as Action for Children’s Television. Most important of all, HBO’s monthly Trendex surveys have shown a steady gain in viewership, until now it is indicated that over 80 per cent of younger children in subscriber families are “Attic” fans. New Directions—This month HBO begins an interesting relationship with Independent Cinema Artists and Producers, a new, not-for-profit film distribution company. The agreement with I.C.A. P. will bring HBO viewers works of young, yet-to-be-recognized or often-overlooked artists, who will be receiving their first television exposure on HBO’s “Something Special” and “Reflections on America” series of short films. More Hopalong—Hopalong Cassidy hits the dusty trail again in a September story that sounds like today’s or tomorrow’s headlines. Hoppy defies the Panhandle Cattlemen’s Association, which is withholding its stock from sales to starving Northern city dwellers, in order to drive up meat prices. Rounding up the cattle of more willing ranchers, Hoppy conducts a long drive to market with the aide of sidekick Gabby Hayes and 1930s cowboy singer Jimmy Ellison. Amidst gunfights and stampedes, Jimmy finds time to croon “Take Me Back to those Wide Open Spaces” and other songs. Brief notes—September is the last chance to learn to draw with Bruce McIntyre, and this month’s episodes review all of the techniques previously discussed . . . More for kids: “Follow the North Star’ ’, a story about the Civil War’s Underground Railroad: another animated classic, “Beauty and the Beast”, and Professor Moffett exploring the mystery of magnetism . . . “Reflections on America” this month ranges in subject matter from Paul Bunyan to Nick Manning’s examination of village government in Vermont.
