VICTORIA ON MASTERPIECE SEASON 2

 

Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) returns for a new season as the young queen who wants it all – romance, power, an heir and personal freedom. The seven-part drama series is created and written by Daisy Goodwin.

 

Season 2 finds Queen Victoria adapting to motherhood after the birth of her first child, a daughter – to the disappointment of many. Meanwhile, the Industrial Revolution takes hold in England, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, and the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc. In other foreign affairs, a royal state visit to France is in the offing.

 

 

More than 16.2 million viewers tuned in for Victoria’s premiere season last year, making it the highest-rated drama on PBS in 20 years – second only to Downton Abbey.

 

Joining the cast in the new season is actress Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), who plays the Duchess of Buccleuch, the court’s new Mistress of the Robes. Tom Hughes reprises his role as the queen’s consort, Prince Albert, and Rufus Sewell returns as Lord Melbourne.

NOVA
Meteor Strike

 

On the morning of February 15, 2013, a 7,000-ton asteroid crashed into the Earth’s atmosphere, exploded and fell to earth across a wide swath near the Ural Mountains. The Siberian meteor was captured by digital dashboard cameras, a common fixture in Russian cars and trucks. Within days, armed with this crowd-sourced material, NOVA crews, along with impact scientists, hit the ground in Russia to hunt for debris from the explosion and clues to the meteor’s origin and makeup.

 

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Speaking Truth to Power

 

The phrase “speak truth to power” is often used to describe an act of courage and non-violence, standing up for what one believes to be the truth, despite resistance from powerful forces. We often think of figures like Martin Luther King Jr., Anita Hill, or the man who stood in the path of tanks in Tiananmen Square.

 

Perhaps the people who have changed our own community by speaking truth to power are our greatest inspiration. On INSIGHTS, we’ll ask three of them about the meaning of truth and how it inspired them personally to face powerful opposition: Attorney General Doug Chin, who filed a lawsuit on behalf of the State of Hawai‘i that successfully challenged the second national travel ban; Randy Roth, a community activist and co-author of Broken Trust; and Loretta Sheehan, trial attorney and member of the Honolulu Police Commission. Colin Moore, UH political science professor and Director of the Public Policy Center, is also scheduled to join this discussion.
