0:00 The news program “Two on Two” taped off TV. The first segment is on the new phenomenon of cable TV.

8:43 The next segment is on Puerto Rico. The report begins with a history of the country, then focuses on whether or not Puerto Rico should become a U.S. state. Puerto Rican governor Romero speaks about why he is pro-statehood.

12:55 FALN member Horacio Morales explains why they reject statehood and demand independence.

14:45 TV hosts debate the issue.

15:15 Two on Two ends. It appears that this was taped over something else, because we start in the middle of what seems to be a raw tape. A woman interviews residents of a working class Chicago neighborhood after a massive blizzard, most likely the blizzard of 1979. She explains that they are making a documentary about one street in Chicago. I was not able to discern the street, but the block they were on had a 1400 address and the residents were all white.

22:00 Tape ends.
