Stay tuned, y’all! We are busily working on providing access to a long time favorite of Texans – KPRC’s “The Eyes of Texas” television show.
Curious about the Von Minden Hotel and Theater in Schulenburg, Texas’ longest operating combination hotel and theater? What about Camp Winiwaca in Rosebud? Did you know Mr. J. Moore, fiddle restorer, in Taylor? The Eyes of Texas show visited landmarks, holes in the wall, everyday folks – a delightful variety of things Texan.
What we have: episodes in DVD format, beginning Sept. 02, 1978, and annotated typewritten summaries of Eyes of Texas television episodes 1979-1993 and 2007-2009, both as prepared by KPRC-TV. Copies of episodes will be available upon request for educational use.
About the show: The Eyes of Texas television show was created by director Ray Miller at Houston’s KPRC-TV and first aired in June 1969. After Ray Miller retired, KPRC-TV Houston news anchor Ron Stone took over as host. The show ran for 29 years, coming to a halt in 1998. In 2007, KPRC began a new series of The Eyes of Texas (see http://www.click2houston.com/eyesoftexas/index.html).
