The fifth hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1984, presidential politics, the candidate selection process and timing of party nomination contests in Iowa and New Hampshire. The guests talked about presidential campaigns over the past 25 years, early contests and primaries for party nominations, the role of the news media in the process, and they responded to questions and comments from viewers. 

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Joel L. Steinberg of Fairfax Station, Va., as well as several clips from previous call-in programming were shown.

This program was part of a 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
