Readers were invited to combine movie or television themes to produce strange new titles. Everyone thought of The Cold Ones, “a new CBC-TV series about Eskimo doctors,” and there were nearly as many nominations for The Foresight Saga, “a TV series combining astrological predictions with the adventures of an old English family.” We received numerous suggestions for shows entitled Hooky Night in Canada, My Three Sins, I Love Loosely and The Odd Squad. The best entries concerned or came from women. Mrs. D. Seeler of Hampstead, Quebec, offered Mother Knows Best, a program to look forward to when women’s lib overcomes the American television networks. She receives $10, as do each of the following:

□ The Broad Squad, a series about a trio of women cops (Mrs. T. J. Ouimet, Dorval, Quebec).

□ Diary of a Bad Housewife, a film about sex in the suburbs (Morley MacKenzie, Ottawa).

□ Beswitched, a series about two couples who, as they say, swing (Miss J. Reed, Kirkland Lake, Ontario).

□ The Freudian Giant, television analysis for the kids (Jane Johnston, Cranbrook, B.C.).

□ The Friendly I oint, a spaced-out TV special of heady discussion on the effects of marijuana (Mrs. C. McDonald, Hawkesbury, N.S.).

□ Room 292, a series about a school with more than the usual headaches (H. MacDonald, Dartmouth, N.S.).

□ It Takes A Leaf, a series about a light-fingered hockey player (Carl Erdmann, St. Catharines, Ont.).

□ The Sold Ones, a special about American Ownership of the Canadian economy (John Maliam, St. John’s, Newfoundland).

□ Downhill Racist, a film starring Lester Maddox as a Slalom Skier (Richard Smolev, Chicago). □
