Backstage Artists: Important to the authenticity and detail, the glamor--and the success--of any stage production are the costumes created by designer and seamstress, here shown at work in a big costume house. Bird Man of Grand Manan: Alan Moses, renowned taxidermist and veteran bird-watcher, finds copious study material on the craggy island in the Bay of Fundy. The Looms That Crossed the Sea: At Ajax, Ontario, a wartime munitions plant converted into a textile mill, equipped and staffed by new Canadians, produces a high-grade shirting fabric never before made in Canada.
