Written, produced, and narrated by Ray Miller for Houston’s KPRC-TV, this television documentary takes a closer look at the Texas Medical Center after its first 20 years of operation. Miller positions the medical complex as a leader in both medical learning and patient care. After visiting classrooms at the Baylor College of Medicine and the Texas Woman’s University College of Nursing, he highlights treatment specialties found at institutions like the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and Texas Children’s Hospital. Miller concludes the program by lauding the Texas Medical Center for its ongoing contributions to medical science, reviewing advancements in treatments and research. Encompassing 61 member institutions and serving 10 million patients a year, the Texas Medical Center is now the largest medical complex in the world.
Newsman Ray Miller (1919 - 2008) began his broadcasting career in 1938 in his home town of Fort Worth. He relocated to Houston soon thereafter, where he joined KPRC Radio. When KPRC purchased Houston’s first television station in 1951, Miller adopted the burgeoning medium, eventually winning a Peabody Award. In 1969, Miller created The Eyes of Texas, a regional television series examining all things Texas. On the air for 30 years, the series became Houston’s longest-running local television program. Miller retired in 1979, serving as news director at both KPRC Radio and KPRC-TV for over 40 years. During his decades-long tenure at KPRC, Miller mentored a number of journalists, including Dan Rather and former US Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. 
 
After retiring from television production, Miller became a local historian, writing several books and travel guides about historic attractions in Houston and Galveston. He also worked with the Harris County Historical Commission to secure markers for numerous sites.
