CHET HUNTLEY: Saying Hello to New By Bill Pollock Almost ayearhaspastsincethe original announcement that Chet Huntley, one half of television’s most familiar newscasting teams would resign from the National Broadcasting Company. “It had to come to an end sometime,” Huntley says. "Actually I've stayed longer than 1 had intended. But now there’s no panic about it. Of primary concern after his departure is a $15 million Montana resort project he has been developing. He said his Montana development consists of 15,000 acres of land in-Gallatin River Valley, 45 miles north of West Yellowstone. It would be, said the Montana-born Huntley, a year round sports resort. Such a resort has been “a dream for more than five years. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. “Of course there were other considerations—I still had some projects I was interested in completing in the broadcasting field." Huntley’s final project and his fare-thee-well to television will take place Thursday evening at 7:30 on Channel 4. It is a documentary on migrant workers titled simply The M igrant Worker and he will appear as the on-screen narrator. ® los Angeles Herald The man who has teported on v '.-rything from key elections, riots, and space walks and who, with his partner David Brinkley, has won every major television award, including six Emmy Awards chose to do the program as his last because the subject matter is one in which he is profoundly interested. Migrant workers are still living in substandard housing and are being treated in many places worse than many slaves were treated in the 19th century, according to the veteran newsman. Ten years ago CBS presented a similar show examining the conditions of poverty, disease and sevitude under which migrant workers were forced to live in the United States. Some short film clips from the early show, reported by the late Edward R. Murrow will be used for contrast on the NBC program. The one-hour report will attempt to show that the plight of the migrant worker remains virtually the same today. Although obvious remedies for improving living and working conditions and raising health standards were evident a decade ago, few of these remedies have been carried out. Insight into this particular blight on the American way of life is sup- Examiner TV WEEKLY Horizons plied by award winning producer-director Martin Carr. In spite of Huntley’s apparent sober personality he is precisely the right man for the reporting job on The Migrant Worker. Says David Brinkley of Huntley, “H e cares. He feels a sense of involvement in the news. Sometimes you can see he’s personally affronted by the news. There is another man in the body of Huntley however. His NBC news office in New York’s bustling Rockefeller Center was much smaller than you would expect for a man of his professional stature. There was an old roll top desk which had belonged to his father who had been a telegra-pherfor the Northern Pacific Railroad. On the wall hung an I862an-cient Winchester rifle and paintings by Montana’s cowboy artist Charley Russell. All have been moved to his new home. And although he gets excited by debates over ecology, the farmer, the migrant and talks occasionally about running for Congress, there were those other curious moments of silence when he would clench his pipe in his teeth, talk of his boyhood in Chet Huntley talks with Montana and look out the window migrant workers in his towards the horizon.

MORTON MOSS TV Editor Inside Bill Cosby there’s a little kid screaming to get out and often making it. The way the little kid makes it is in those funny and human monologues in which Cosby seems to project a total recall of the emotional tone of a boy’s childhood experience. Tomorrow is a day dedicated to Santa Claus, and not without bearing on little kids. Bill, on The New Bill Cosby Show, will do his part in helping to celebrate the rites of the white-whiskered gentleman, 10 to 11 p.m., via CBS. For various reasons, a few of which will be touched upon, Cosby has wondered whether The New Bill Cosby Show will survive long enough to be an old Bill Cosby show. The season’s first half ratings weren’t precisely an urge to handsprings and cartwheels by Cosby and George Schlater, ex of Laugh-In, the show’s producer. The executive suite at CBS has been impatiently awaiting the termination of ABC’s Monday night pro football. It outflanked Cosby in a vast stretch of the country east of here, starting at 9 p.m. Here, he suffered no conflict with football teeing up its telecast at 6 in the evening. ABC has completed its pro grid campaign even if the National Football League hasn’t. The Nielsens will be pored over from week to week now for evidence of an affirmative change. “I have a thought,” Cosby said. “Bill Cosby a while ago was fresh and new and exciting to the public. I was a black person and I got into I Spy and specials and records. Everything THE LATEST EDITION OF BILL COSBY was good. Some of it was the curiosity about me because I a black. The winning of Emmy awards I attribute partly to that. “I don’t mean that in a cynical way. What I mean is that it was a vote of confidence. And, then, I began to do the thing I always wanted to do. It was to give a statement of myself as a human being, in addition to offering myself as an entertainer. I didn’t want the white viewer to accept me as a black entertainer and not think of the other blacks and that no problem existed in America because: look at me. Cosby believes that, as more and more he took stands, he turned people off and they turned him off. As he analyzes it, they watched him for laughs and, when the percentage of laughs to homily diminished, their devotion started to ease off. 4 Los Angeles Herald-Examiner TV WEEKLY If Bill isn’t sure if The New Bill Cosby Show will grow old, there was, nonetheless, an old Bill Cosby show. That was called, reasonably enough, The Bill Cosby Show. NBC provided the platform — for one season. “I’m proud of my school teaching series,” said Cosby, who played Kincaid, a high school coach. “What I tried for were moralistic values and ideas. I’m proud of Kincaid, though he wasn’t popular. The public was disappointed. “I didn’t want a laugh track. I asked why I should have one. ‘So people should know when something is supposed to be funny, and laugh’ they told me. I refused. I told them, ‘let people laugh when they think it’s funny and not laugh when they don’t.’ Still, Cosby won’t argue with the effectiveness of the laugh track. He put it facetiously. He couldn’t see any possible reason but a laugh track as explanation why certain shows stayed on television. His point seemed to be that, if the shows are lousy, at least the laugh tracks aren’t. We detest laugh tracks. They’re an insulting, manipulative device, using people as laboratory material for pic-ture-tube Dr. Frankensteins. They belong in the category of the applause signs they flash to the studio audience at certain shows, programming them like inanimate matter to express mechanical joy. Cosby said, “One thing that proved to me that the excitement wasn’t there for me anymore was the reaction to the television movie I did. The ratings of To All My Friends at Sea were that low. It was a story that revolved «y 5 Los Aitgeles Herald-Examiner TV WEEKLY I
