INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Will visiting our most popular places soon be the toughest ticket in town?

 

As a tourist destination, Hawai`i continues to set new records for visitor arrivals, creating greater demand by millions of people seeking access to the famous, iconic sites throughout our islands.

 

Next month the National Park Service will follow Hanauma Bay State Park and the USS Arizona Memorial by limiting access to the spectacular sunrise at Haleakala, citing safety and environmental concerns.

 

“This date sold out.” “No reservations available.” Will visiting our most popular places soon be the toughest ticket in town?

CURIOUS TRAVELER
Curious About – London

 

Journalist Christine Van Blokland brings her passion and genuine curiosity for the arts, quirky characters, storytelling and lifelong learning to an exploration of London. She asks: Why is St. Paul’s Cathedral such an iconic symbol of London? And why doesn’t it face due East? And what does St. Paul have to do with the City of London crest? What is the City of London and why can’t the Queen come in? Why do so many London neighborhoods end in -gate? Why is Temple Church round? And what did those secretive Knights Templar do here? And what does all of this have to do with Magna Carta – and why has a copy remained at Salisbury Church for 800 years?

“These are real-time conversations in which Hawai‘i’s citizens can assess whether opponents are able to think on their feet, ask questions as well as answer them, and disagree respectfully,” said Leslie Wilcox, PBS Hawai‘i President and CEO. “In previous elections, we received feedback from viewers that Insights discussions provided some of the more telling moments of the election season.”

 

The program will be available to watch after the live broadcast at PBSHawaii.org/insights
