retrospective features five volunteer producers highlighting shows about the environment, racial and

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
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.
