This footage features Carolyn Jackson enjoying a variety of leisure activities, such as reading Southern Living Magazine, gardening in the backyard, jumping on a trampoline, riding a tandem bicycle, chasing ducks beside a pond, and playing with a dachshund. The final shot shows her popping up and waving from behind the bushes that obscure her front door.
Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC-affiliate KXAN).
These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
