Carolyn Jackson interviews the Technical Director and Advance Man of the Boston Ballet on the eve of their performance at The Paramount Theater in Austin. The conversation centers around the tremendous amount of behind the scenes work required to stage a ballet. Details of the preparation work include lighting, rehearsal, and especially the special linoleum floor they lay for the dancers. Also included is a description of the performances that will take place at the Paramount over the following two nights.
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.
