Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews Michael Ansara about his role as Lame Beaver in the upcoming television miniseries adaptation of James Michner's Centennial. Ansara discusses the difficulties of and his resistance to being typecast – for much of his career the Syrian-born actor played Native Americans. He also talks about the making of Centennial, the authenticity of the location, and the extreme weather experienced on location through out his career.

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.
