Twenty-Third Busiversary (2013-14)

This version of Flying Focus' annual retrospective features five volunteer producers highlighting shows about the environment, racial and economic justice, education, war and peace, nuclear issues, media literacy, labor struggles, animal rights and creative "reuse" recycling.

Part 1 includes clips from Barb Greene, PC Peri, Mike Brown and Dan Handelman which focus on brownfields, Latinos' experiences in Oregon and in the classrooms, what's wrong with "Common Core," the legal and grassroots efforts to end war, and two shows about the ongoing US presence in Afghanistan.

Part 2 has Dan, Allen Evans, and Barb talking about Hiroshima Day 2013, police accountability and housing rights, the stories you don't know being exposed by Project Censored, protests against Walmart, the health risks of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the elephants in Portland's zoo, and "getting your junk fixed" at the Repair Cafe.

The 14 sets of clips are taken from 24 new episodes produced between December 2013 and October 2014. The show was produced by Dan, with appearances by Barb, PC, Dan, Allen, and videographer Joe Anybody, plus a sneak peak behind the scenes at the other crew who helped tape the introductions in the studio at Portland Community Media. Flying Focus uses its yearly review not only to present a summary of the year's work and issues, but additionally de-mystifies the experience of making TV.

The Video Bus has been running weekly since November 18, 1991.
