Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews reporter and anchor Lloyd Dobyns about his program Weekend (on air 1974 - 1979), which was being moved to a prime time slot. Dobyns discusses the format of the program as well as the ways in which topics are picked for the show, the priority of content over schedule, and of interest of importance. He also talks about his family life and the career aspirations of his four children.

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.
