In this interview, Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson discusses the film The Other Side of Midnight with director Charles Jarrott. Topics covered include why Jarrott is often referred to as a "women's director," as well as his experience working with actresses Marie-France Pisier and Susan Sarandon, and decisions made in the adaptation from the book. They also converse about a controversial scene the director decided to leave in the film and why he believed men and women reacted to it differently.

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.
