The Katrina special was an hour-long exploration of Austin's response to Hurricane Katrina. We presented three documentary pieces all following the same New Orleans family as they tried to establish themselves in Austin. The pieces explore how they were able to find housing, get their children in school, and meet other social-service needs. In the pieces we meet a few of the hundreds of Austinites who worked at the Convention Center and other venues to help the evacuees.
In addition to the documentary pieces, the program also included three
in-studio interview featuring Austin Mayor Will Wynn and others who updated
viewers on the on-going effort to meet the needs of the Katrina evacuees
who are still in our city.
