This U.S. Information Agency program from 1978 includes five stories: the sport of skateboarding, laser technology used to clean works of art, a company that investigates engineering failures, Jim Henson’s Muppet studio, and a Texas community with an innovative computer-based security and emergency response system. Between 1972 and 1979, the U.S. Information Agency produced these monthly half-hour “Vision USA” reports for foreign audiences on life in America. Translated into many languages, the magazine format promoted tourism and American life in many forms, from arts to science and technology. This program is from the National Archives' motion picture collection. close
