HANNAH'S ARMED PROTEST CREATES STORM OF CONTROVERSY

OVER JOBS VS. HISTORICAL HERITAGE,

ON "SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS," DEC. 29

Hannah makes an armed stand against the bulldozer demolition of the oldest building in Murphys by a construction company that gained title to the land by unscrupulous means, on "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," Wednesday, Dec. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. John Patterson directed from a script by series producer Richard Fielder.

In the episode, Peter Horton (Crane), Roger Wilson (Daniel), Bryan Utman (Ford) and River Phoenix, (Guthrie) sing "Hold On," an original song for the series composed by Jimmy Webb.

Hannah's impassioned protest against the razing of the original Murphy's schoolhouse, where her great-grandmother once taught, falls on deaf ears in the community, even among the McFadden men, because a factory is to be built in its place, and jobs mean more to many families than preserving a bit of local history. Meanwhile, Guthrie runs into a mini-scandal as well, when his frog, "Loser," is swiped just before the First Annual Carbon County Frog-Jumping Derby.

McFADDENS SHELTER YOUNG WOMAN ON THE RUN

FROM MEN WHO KILLED HER HUSBAND,

ON "SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS," JAN. 5

A young farmworker flees for her life after witnessing her husband's murder at the hands of smugglers, and the McFaddens shelter her from the gunmen who are out to kill her, on "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," Wednesday, Jan. 5 (8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. John Patterson directed from a script by Paul L. Ehrmann.

Evan and Hannah find a pregnant young illegal alien, Angelina, hiding in the barn, ravenous and frightened from days of running from the killers, and her baby is due at any time. The McFaddens give her shelter, but Angelina runs away again, not knowing that in return for her help in the case against the farm-labor smugglers the authorities can offer her protection and citizenship.

In the episode, several of the cast sing "Angelina's Chili," a song written for the series with music and lyrics by Jimmy Webb.

McFADDEN BROTHERS TRACK A DANGEROUS

WOUNDED MOUNTAIN LION ON THE PROWL FOR EASY PREY,

IN "SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS," JAN. 12

Adam risks being mauled when he and his brothers track and corner "Old Scarback," a wounded mountain lion that could turn on them at any moment, on "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," Wednesday, Jan. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. Barry Crane directed from a script by Jud Scott.

Brian teaches Guthrie how to hunt, and also to respect all wild animals, but Guthrie is not sure he could shoot to kill. Several days later, when the McFaddens begin tracking "Old Scarback," a wounded cougar suspected of killing local livestock, Adam is knocked unconscious in a fall in the woods and Guthrie is forced to make a life-or-death decision when he sees the mountain lion crouched over Adam.

In the episode, Peter Horton (Crane) sings "Old Scarback," an original song for the episode with words and music written by Jimmy Webb.
