Carolina Camera was a short segment that ran on Charlotte's WBTV from the '70s to the '90s, though it was briefly resurrected in the 2010s. We found a treasure trove of old broadcasts on YouTube and will be sharing one of our favorites with you every Wednesday.

For this week's episode, we're bringing you the story of Gwen Norton, a woman who trained pigs to race in her son-in-law's carnival. She and her pigs became so famous it led to an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.

And in case you're wondering, the winning pig received an Oreo.
