INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Ala Wai Flood Control Project

 

Plans to prevent massive flooding in Waikīkī have been in the works for years, as worries mount over the threat of a major storm causing the Ala Wai Canal to overflow. Drawn up by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Ala Wai Flood Control Project would take private residential land along the canal for flood mitigation. Property owners object and say there wasn’t enough opportunity for public input. What do you think?

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
What Can We Do to Mitigate Sea Level Rise in Hawai‘i?

 

Rising sea levels are a concern here in Hawai‘i and other coastal communities around the world. In December 2017, the State Climate Commission accepted the first major study on Hawai‘i’s vulnerability to rising sea levels. Our well-informed guests for the program are experts on this subject and they will highlight the concerns and recommendations from this report.

Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Featuring Deborah Voigt and John Rhys-Davies

 

Soprano Deborah Voigt and acclaimed British actor and voice artist John Rhys-Davies join the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in Salt lake City, Utah for a concert of holiday favorites.  Among the highlights are Voight’s performances of the English carol “The Holly and the Ivy” and the light-hearted “The Twelve Days After Christmas” with the choir and orchestra.

 

The program also includes two festive Russian pieces, with dancers joining the choir and orchestra for excerpts from Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Polonaise” from Christmas Eve and “Dance of the Tumblers” from Tchaikovsky’s The Snow Maiden.

 

Another highlight is Rhys-Davies’ dramatization of “A Dickens Christmas,” a vignette featuring him as the Ghost of Christmas Present.
