Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson reports on location from Pflugerville, where she interviews the current mayor, Clarence Bohls, and the town's first mayor, I.B. Krienke. Jackson's next interview is with Lillian Zimmerman, co-chairman of the Pflugerville Deutschen Pfest, a festival celebrating the town's German heritage. Jackson finishes her tour at the Pfluger Market where she speaks to the owner and descendant of the town's founders, George Pfluger. The discussion includes how meat storage and preparation has changed over time and the type of food Pfluger served that drew people to his store from all over Central Texas.

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.
