Remember When – A History of Dallas

In a city like Dallas, that takes pride in being one of the most progressive urban centers in America, the relentless focus on tomorrow can make it difficult to remember yesterday. For those who have forgotten what Dallas used to be like – and for those who never knew – this KERA special offers a nostalgic look at what life was like in the Dallas that existed 30, 50, even 60 years ago. The program combines archival film footage – including home movies – with still photos and interviews with a wide range of Dallasites to recreate the days when every plane at Love Field had a propeller and Pegasus was the highest point on the city skyline. Narrated by Dallas native Ray Wylie Hubbard, “Remember When” is full of moments that will change the way viewers feel and think about Dallas.
