Produced by Jim Ruddy and presented by the Shell Companies Foundation and the Texas Committee for the Humanities, The Texas Experience presents the history of Texas through a series of one-minute clips. Each clip features a celebrity narrator briefly exploring a specific aspect of Texas history or culture, with topics ranging from early women settlers to Buddy Holly's short but influential career. In this episode, legendary football coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Tom Landry tells the story of Navy Messman Doris "Dorie" Miller's heroic actions during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
