Produced by the Jamieson Film Company for the Texas State Parks Board, this 1968 promotional film takes viewers on a guided tour of some of the most popular state parks. (Jamieson also produced the Texas in Review television series, on which original features shown in this film previously appeared.) Park-goers enjoy a variety of recreational activities, such as water skiing, swimming, and fishing. The film highlights the unique attractions found at specific state parks, from the bountiful vegetation at Palmetto State Park to the natural formations at Palo Duro Canyon State Scenic Park to the ruins of Fort Davis at Davis Mountains State Park. Beyond parks, the film also features several historic sites.
"Texas in Review" was a television series sponsored by the Humble Oil & Refining Company.  Originally produced in a news-like format by Fort Worth's Channel 5, the series was later given to the Jamieson Film Company, who developed its newsreel and TV-magazine style. For five years, Jamieson produced the program in its entirety (writing, filming, editing), until recession-induced budget cuts caused Humble Oil to cancel it in 1958. While on air in Dallas, it enjoyed the prime time spot between the popular "Burns & Allen" and "I Love Lucy."
