Documentary looks back at America’s first mass school shooting Before Columbine, before Newtown and before Virginia Tech, there was the University of Texas. Fifty years ago, a man with a half dozen guns climbed to the 27th floor of the clock tower at the University of Texas at Austin. Just before the bell in the tower marked the noon hour, he began shooting. Over the next hour and a half, he killed more than a dozen people and an unborn baby, and wounded 32 others. A new documentary takes us back to that afternoon in Austin and tells the story through the people who survived the massacre. It’s called Tower .

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
