The CBC probably sees it as a timely and daring decision. After eight seasons as one of the most-listened-to programs on Canadian radio, Royal Canadian Air Farce has been judged ready to go on television regularly (March 25, 7:30 p.m.). There isn’t a lot that qualifies as intelligent comedy about, for and by Canadians on CBC-TV, so why it has taken this long for the half-hour weekly show to be televised is a puzzle: Air Farce does a splendid job of dispensing the world’s best medicine, having already won an ACTRA, a Juno and the International Broadcasting Award for Excellence.

Having already won a Golden Globe Award for his first attempt at directing in Ordinary People, fair-haired Robert Redford has decided it might be worth his while to attend the Academy Awards on March 30 where he is a nominee along with directors David Lynch (The Elephant Man), Martin Scorsese (Raging Bull), Roman Polanski (Tess) and Richard Rush (The Stunt Man).

Thank you so much for your cover story Our Next Queen (March 9). It isn’t only Britons “deep in economic gloom and political wrangling” who welcome the excitement and pageantry of a royal wedding. As a Canadian frustrated by Canada’s economic woes and the fracas over the constitution, I am delighted to be able to look forward to our prince’s wedding in July.
