The twelfth hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1991 and on U.S. Supreme Court nominations. Ms. Biskupic talked about the past and current make up of the court, the confirmation process, the impact of televised hearings on Supreme Court nominations, and the recent vacancies on the court opened by the retirement of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and death of Chief Justice Rehnquist. She also responded to questions and comments from viewers. 

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Joe Martin of Oceanside, Calif., and several clips from past programming were aired.

The program was part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
