The 1987 promotional video, "A Time for Heroes," presents the Texas Special Olympics through a combination of images of special Olympians competing and training alongside interviews with the many volunteers who have given of their time for the sake of the events. The film highlights the ways in which the events help the Olympians gain valuable life skills and build confidence while also showing the many rewarding ways in which volunteers can assist. While placing the Special Olympics in its international context, the film emphasizes the challenges faced and victories won by the Texas team. The video was produced by Arlington-based company, Aries Production Incorporated.
Known to many as the "Voice of the Longhorns," Wally Pryor served as the announcer for UT sports from 1953 until 2002. While his voice was certainly recognizable he also played an active role as a producer – for KTBC, amongst others – and regularly served as an emcee for various events. Wally regularly worked as a producer for his older brother Richard "Cactus" Pryor. The films in the Wally Pryor collection represent a range of films from home movies, to various pieces he produced, films featuring himself, and several films featuring Cactus Pryor.
