Sam Low: Raising Islands     
Tuesday, November 25 at 7:30 pm

As a crewmember on the Hokulea, waterman Sam Low experienced the chicken skin moments when, as the canoe would approach a Pacific island, the island itself would appear to be raised out of the distant horizon as the canoe sailed closer.  As a documentarian, author Sam Low heard the vision, fears and dreams of master navigator Nainoa Thompson and those involved with sailing the canoe.  On this episode, Sam Low shares his stories of sailing on Hokulea.

This program is available in high-definition and will be rebroadcast on Wed., Nov. 26 at 11:00 pm and Sun., Nov. 30 at 4:00 pm.

Jim Burns: A Local Boy
Tuesday, December 2, 7:30 pm

If you call Jim Burns a haole he would likely take offense. His father, John A. Burns, always thought of himself as a local boy. Jim, who grew up in Kailua and easily breaks into Pidgin English, sees himself the same way. As Jim was growing up, he saw the respect that his father had for Hawaii immigrants, and learned that being a local boy was about more than just speaking Pidgin.

This program is available in high-definition and will be rebroadcast on Wed., Dec. 3 at 11:00 pm and Sun., Dec. 7 at 4:00 pm.
