"TELESCOPE looks at the philosophy, hard work and adventurous life of Canadian cowboy Dave Diebel on his ranch at Long View, Alberta. Dave Diebel is an Alberta rancher in his early fifties who leads a rugged, individualistic existence that gives a natural authority to his convictions. With film of the Rocky Mountains, cattle herding, sheep hunting and an Indian reserve near Calgary serving as background, rancher Diebel expresses his outlook on life, his views on the state of modern education and the dilemma of the Canadian Indian."
