It’s A Living was the first locally produced portable videotape program broadcast in 1975 on WTTW.

Introduction by Judy Hoffman, Professor of Practice, Department of Cinema and Media Studies, with Sara Chapman and Tom Weinberg from Media Burn Archive.  (Produced at Videopolis by Skip Blumberg, Paul Challacombe, Joel Gold, Judy Hoffman, Anda Korsts, Jim Mayer, Jack McFadden,Tom Shea, Tom Weinberg, Jim Wiseman, with Studs Terkel; 60 min)
