This film from KHOU-TV Channel 11 in Houston contains a series of short news segments from the 1960s that would have aired as highlights to news stories. Many are silent and would have been voiced over by the anchorperson during a live broadcast. The titles for each segment are the originals created by KHOU-TV. This series includes news segments about the Houston Independent School District’s integration, the construction of George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and an interview with Texas Attorney General Will Wilson about the fraud charges against businessman Billie Sol Estes.
This film was donated to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image by the Houston Public Library and is a part of the Houston Area Digital Archives.  Many more films from the KHOU-TV Collection are available on the Houston Public Library Houston Area Digital Archives website
