PBS HAWAI‘I PRESENTS
Under a Jarvis Moon

 

This film tells the story of 130 young men from Hawaii who, from the late 1930s through the early years of World War II, were part of a clandestine mission by the U.S. federal government to occupy desert islands in the middle of the Pacific. The first wave of these colonists was a group of Hawaiian high school students, chosen because government officials assumed Pacific Islanders could best survive the harsh conditions present on the tiny, isolated islands. For the young men, who were unaware of the true purpose of their role as colonists, what ensued is a tale of intrigue, courage, and ultimately, tragedy.

 

 

Secrets of Westminster

 

The Houses of Parliament and the Tower of Big Ben are classic London emblems of historic British democracy. The Palace of Westminster, which includes the House of Commons and the House of Lords, stands as a monument to a fair and open political system, but within its gothic walls are the hidden worlds of Parliament, where back-stabbing, intrigue and traditions are the order of the day. Around the corner, Westminster Abbey is steeped in Anglo-Saxon myths, legends and history of over 3,000 great men and women buried or memorialized here throughout the ages.
