Where can I watch the new episodes? I see the website says it has some but the video seems to not be working. I no longer live in the area so I can't watch live anymore.

I am looking for a VERY FUNNY film called "King's Day out," about a person with many demanding pets. I cried with laughter when I saw it. Is it available?

Craig Simms, were you ever able to view " George Talking Straight"? If you did, could you tell me who I should contact to view it myself. I saw it many years ago, and I was captivated by this man. It was pure genius to just point the camera at him and let him go. I hope the he is doing well.

many of the early image union broadcasts are online on that's the site we have created for unique nonfiction videos from 1972-2002. you can write image union in the search box. each is documented and logged for relatively simple watching.

I am looking for an episode of Image Union from the early 2000s or thereabouts. In particular, I am looking for a black and white film by a cranky student who is petitioning an ugly fountain on campus.

I am finding it difficult to locate much of anything from Image Union episodes online

Whatever happened to Timmy and Lucile?

I am looking for a film that was shown on Image Union. It was a short film created in Hinsdale Illinois back in the 70's. It featured Beatles music and because I never go tto see it the only clues I have about it was a hand letting go of a hand with the music "Don't let me down" I just know it was filmed by a kid from Hinsdale Central High School. My told me it played on Image Union, but I did not get to see it. Would anyone have a clue as to where I could see it?

I am looking for two films that were featured on Image Union years ago, "Mon General" is one, and "Henry" is the other.

to reply to both craig and jim, i also remember this (and was actually searching for this which is why i came across this thread) and actually had it taped, yet unfortunately i accidentally taped over it. i'm still upset about this. i must have seen it in the 90's at some point. i think i would have been too young to appreciate it in the 80's. if anyone comes across a copy or source of one, i'd also love to know. my favorite scene has to be where he recounts being pulled over and walking a line and thus starts playing 'basketball' up and down the yellow line in the middle of the road.

Going way back- early 1980s, maybe 1981- a surreal, hilarious short film with a theme around cocktail sausages. A musical number called "Window Shopping for Cocktail Sausages" and a short scene of a man in drag saying "there's nothing quite like the sound of a toothpick piercing the skin of a cocktail sausage. Cocktail sausages: My pals."

Google is giving me nothing- nothing from contacting 11 either- I'd actually be happy if anybody told me they remembered this. Almost 30 years later, I do.

In the early 1980's you showed a film called GEORGE TALKING STRAIGHT, by Jean de Segonzac and Marian Marzynski. Produce by Governors State Univerity 1980. A man confesses to the camera his story of drunk driving and his arrest. It aired on Image Union at least twice that I know of. It would be great if I could acquire a copy. Thank You.

back in the 80's, there was a film about a guy who lost his license due to a DUI. the film followed him around. i recall one scene where he was watching a bears game and screaming about walter payton. does anyone remember the film and what it was called? i always wondered what happened to the guy.

I seem to remember an animation that featured a cat and a man where they were like detectives and I think it was called "Bandits." It would have been on Image Union in the late 80's. I haven't been able to find it in any searches and wonder if anyone has heard of it?

I wish Image Union would show "Fifty Cups of Coffee" again. Think I'll go make myself a pot. I know, I know..."It'll kill ya!"

I haven't lived in Chicago since 1995 but I used to watch Image Union every Sunday night. My favorite was "Sandwich Man", a very popular film about a guy who went from dorm to dorm at Northwestern U's Evanston campus at night, selling sandwiches. I remember that it was so popular that they re-aired it, due to requests from viewers.

What do you all think about today's Image Union compared to its early years.

I haven't watched in regularly in years but I've seen some of the more modern episodes and they don't seem as interesting for some reason.

To bad they don't reruns the older episodes.
