Local Programs

Along with the great national programming found on PBS Hawaii, we are proud to present local shows produced both by PBS Hawaii and by Hawaii’s independent production community and seen exclusively on PBS Hawaii.

We count telling Hawaii’s stories to Hawaii’s people and to the nation among the most important things we do. The following is a list of programs recently presented on PBS Hawaii.
