Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews football legend Joe Namath regarding his role as Joe Casey on the television show The Waverly Wonders. The discussion shifts between discussing Namath's football days and his current roles as an actor. Throughout their conversation there is much lighthearted play regarding the times when Namath played against the Texas Longhorns, and though Jackson tries to teach him Namath proves unwilling to learn the signature "Hook ‘em horns" hand gesture.

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.
