Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews actor Jack Albertson about his upcoming role as Senator Joe Kelley on the television show Grandpa Goes to Washington. They discuss the format of the show, and what issues the senator will tackle -- especially those closely affecting senior citizens. He also talks about his wife's political involvement, the factors influencing his decision to take the role, and his days working in Vaudeville.

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.
