Description
Between the late 1970s and mid-1990s, a large series of television programs entitled "Sonoma County in the [70s, etc.]," were produced for Sonoma County public access cable television under direction of the Sonoma County Public Information Office (now known as the Office of County Administrator). Each segment features interviews with Sonoma County elected and appointed officials, department heads, and individuals associated with local educational and cultural organizations. Some segments also feature local business owners and include public service announcements.
