Road Dreams is a series of six television programmes, each of approximately 25 minutes duration, last shown on British terrestrial television in the early 1990s on Channel 4. A DVD with 13 short films using the Road Dreams footage is available from the producer's website - www.retroroadtrips.com - and all six original episodes can be viewed on YouTube. The programmes were created by Elliott Bristow, being a compilation of Super 8 mm film footage filmed by Bristow during an extended stay in the United States. Each programme opens with the following text: "In 1968 Elliott Bristow went to New York for a two week holiday. In 1980, after twelve years and 500,000 miles on the road in America he returned to England with three trunks containing 75 hours of silent Super 8 film - his diary of this 'holiday'!" The programmes depict Bristow's journeys across the USA. Many pieces were filmed whilst driving; others show Bristow's friends and locations he visited. Because of the source material, the technical quality of the programme suffers; some may consider this to be part of the charm of the work. The footage is accompanied by occasional explanatory comments from Bristow, readings by Mark Murphy and music tracks. The music is mainly but not exclusively instrumental classical and New Age music.

American Family: Journey of Dreams is a PBS series created by Gregory Nava that follows the lives of a Latino family in Los Angeles. This was the first broadcast television drama series featuring a predominantly Latino cast. It also was the first original primetime American episodic drama to air on PBS in decades -- since the series I'll Fly Away moved to the network. Nava initially created the series for CBS, which passed on the pilot. PBS picked up 12 remaining episodes for its first season. Edward James Olmos plays Jess Gonzalez, a Korean War veteran and barber with a cranky disposition as well as five adult children. He and his wife Berta seek a better life for their children. Conrado is a medical school student, who, at the end of the first season, enlists in the Army. In an interview with Bill Moyers during the airing of the series, Nava was asked if he wasn't angry that Latinos were invisible during prime-time television. "I think we’re reaching a point right now where Latinos are moving from the fringes into the mainstream of American life. And our time has come right now for us to make our contribution to this country," he said. "So it doesn’t make me angry; I just see it as a challenge. And I think that as a population and as a community we have to rise to that challenge."
