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.
Produced by the Sonoma County Public Information Office, and later, by the Office of County Administrator, to explore the
workings of Sonoma County government and to highlight cultural resources such as the Sonoma County Fair.
