This film from KHOU-TV Channel 11 in Houston contains a series of short news segments 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. The clips on this reel all date from February 23, 1971. This series includes news segments about an art theft, the University of Houston basketball and tennis teams, and the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

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

Guy Lewis was born in Arp, Texas on March 19, 1922. He graduated from the University of Houston in 1947. In 1953, Lewis began coaching basketball at his alma mater, becoming the head coach in 1956. He held the position until his retirement in 1986, leading the Cougars to 27 straight winning seasons and five Final Four appearances. One of the first major college coaches to actively recruit African-American players, Lewis also helped usher in racial integration in the South during the 1960s. 
In 1995, the University of Houston named the court at its on-campus basketball arena, Hofheinz Pavilion, in Lewis’ honor. The former coach died on November 25, 2015 at a retirement facility in Kyle. He was 93.
