Hosted by hair designer Vidal Sassoon, Your New Day was a half-hour, regular format which featured self-help segments, and was billed as an 'energy and self-awareness show.' Streisand's mother, Diana Kind, appeared on a “famous moms” segment of the show and shared photos of Barbra, sister Roslyn Kind, and brother Sheldon.

Los Angeles KHJ

Streisand and then-boyfriend Don Johnson both appeared on KHJ-TV Channel 9. With the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, KHJ presented an eight-hour telethon aimed at increasing community support for the sheriff's SANE (Substance Abuse Narcotics Education) program, "SANE Kids Say No." Streisand's bit was pre-recorded. Facing the camera, she said: “Substance abuse and its evil effects have reached catastrophic levels in our community. To effectively impact this plague, the appetite for drugs must be reduced through education. Success requires that we start at the youngest possible age. Programs like SANE in our elementary schools hold the key. Let us not forget that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.”
