Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews Alan Pakula, director of All the President's Men. The conversation centers around Pakula's ability to achieve edge-of-your-seat suspense in the audience while telling a story with a well known ending. Pakula discusses the intense reality for which cast and crew alike strove, from Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman becoming fully immersed in their characters to the extreme realism of the sets, down to the trash.

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.
