I represent the first generation who, when we were born, the television was now a permanent fixture in our homes. When I was born people had breakfast with Barbara Walters, dinner with Walter Cronkite, and slept with Johnny Carson.

After a long and successful acting career that includes such films and television series as The Flying Nun, McKenna’s Gold, Blume in Love, Breezy, General Hospital and Will & Grace,Shelley Morrison recently transitioned into the world of documentary film making. Her first documentary, Weaving the Past: Journey of Discovery, which she produced along with her husband (writer, producer and director Walter Dominguez), is a moving story about Walter’s attempt to trace the roots of his grandfather Emilio Hernandez.
Though it originally began as a family project, Weaving the Past soon evolved into a much bigger story that discusses not only Mexican-American history, but issues of social justice that are still relevant today. We’ll talk about the film, but we’ll also ask Shelley and Walter about some of the many mentors who continue to influence them today, including Eli Wallach, Robert Wise, Stanley Kramer and James Garner. Shelley Morrison and Walter Dominguez will join us in our second hour.
Also this week: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen with an expanded edition of This Week in Television History that remembers the birth of Carroll O’Connor and the legacy of All in the Family, and Greg Ehrbar with a brand new DVD report.
