Broadcast live on KFDM-TV in Beaumont, this footage features a trio of classic local television news segments. The first is a feature on the Harvey family, whose 19 children make it one of the largest families in east Texas. The second and third follow the mystery of the Minglewood peacock. With the latter, reporter Tom Wright takes pleasure in making as many fowl-filled puns as possible. Joining the station in 1985, Wright has worked for KFDM for more than 30 years. He currently serves as a news managing editor.
