AUTUMNWATCH NEW ENGLAND
Part 3 of 3

 

from their base in the heart of New Hampshire, Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Gillian Burke bring us the latest happenings from deep in the American woods. We learn about the science of how this spectacular leaf change comes about, and meet some of the smaller residents who change colour along with the leaves.

 

Michaela has been on a moose mission, finding out about a tiny but deadly enemy of these massive beasts, and Gillian is looking for red efts in the leaf litter – a brightly coloured newt that comes out in damp conditions.

Proof of Loyalty: Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawai‘i

 

Kazuo Yamane, a Nisei Japanese American from Hawai‘i, played a crucial strategic role in WWII. Drafted just before the war, Yamane became a part of the 100th Infantry Battalion. He was plucked from their ranks for his exceptional knowledge of the Japanese language, which would lead him to the Pentagon and to Europe, where he served under President Eisenhower. Yamane would eventually use his language skills to help shorten the war in the Pacific.
