PBS HAWAII PRESENTS

Fixing Juvie Justice

Thurs., April 9, 9:00 pm

Encore

 

Young people are entering the juvenile justice system in surprising numbers, and
they seem to emerge worse than when they entered. In this film, a co-production
of National Geographic and Pacific Islanders in Communications, we see how a group
of innovators applies the restorative justice principles of the Maori people of
New Zealand to the mean streets of Baltimore.

 

In Maori villages of the past, a crime would put the community out of balance.
Traditional Maori justice turns on the idea of restoring that balance. This
film crosses the globe to a culturally sacred marae (meeting ground)
where Judge Heemi Taumanu has established an alternative youth court that draws
on these principles. Viewers see how people come together to resolve conflict
in their own communities and all of the drama that unfolds when everyone is
given a chance and encouraged to let emotions out. Can a community-based
approach to justice derived from a structure conceived centuries ago in New
Zealand give hope to the mean streets of the United States?

CANCER: THE EMPEROR OF ALL MALADIES

Produced by Ken Burns and directed by Barak Goodman, Cancer: The Emperor of All
Maladies tells the comprehensive story of cancer, from its first description in
an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research
institutions. The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by
Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D.

 

The six-hour, three-part film interweaves a sweeping historical narrative with
intimate stories about contemporary patients, and an investigation into the
latest scientific breakthroughs that may have brought us, at long last, within sight
of lasting cures.

 

Magic Bullets

Mon., March 30, 9:00 pm

New

The search for a “cure” for cancer is the greatest epic in the history of science,
spanning centuries and continents, complete with heroes, villains and sudden
twists. This episode follows that centuries-long search, but centers on the
story of Sidney Farber, who, defying conventional wisdom in the late 1940s,
introduces the modern era of chemotherapy, eventually galvanizing a full-scale
national “war on cancer.” Interwoven with Farber’s narrative is the story of
Olivia Blair, who at 14 months old is diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic
leukemia, which spreads to her brain and spinal column.

 

The Blind Men and the Elephant

Tuesday, March 31, 9:00 pm

New

Richard Nixon declares “war on cancer” in 1971. Flush with optimism and awash with
federal dollars, the cancer field plunges forward in search of a cure. In the
lab, rapid progress is made in understanding the essential nature of the cancer
cell, leading to the revolutionary discovery of the genetic basis of cancer.
But at the bedside, where patients are treated, few new therapies become
available, and a sense of disillusionment takes hold, leading some patients and
doctors to take desperate measures. It is not until the late 1990s that the
advances in research begin to translate into more precise targeted therapies
with the breakthrough drugs Gleevec and Herceptin. The film intertwines the
story of Dr. Lori Wilson, a surgical oncologist who is diagnosed with invasive
breast cancer in 2013.

 

Finding an Achilles Heel

Wednesday, April 1, 9:00 pm

New

Scientists believe they have cracked the mystery of the malignant cell and the first
targeted therapies are developed, with the promise of many more to follow. But
very quickly cancer reveals new layers of complexity and unforeseen defenses.
In the disappointment that follows, many call for a new focus on prevention and
early detection as the most promising fronts in the war on cancer. But other
scientists are undeterred, and by the second decade of the 2000s their work
pays off. This episode follows patients Doug Rogers, a 60-year-old NASCAR
mechanic with melanoma, and Emily Whitehead, a six-year-old child afflicted
with leukemia – both pioneers in new immunotherapy treatments.

When we hear his distinctive voice, there is no mistaking the music of Jerry Santos.
And when we listen to his lyrics, there is no mistaking his connection with the
memories and emotions of our own lives.  In this NA MELE, Jerry has woven
together a story of home.  “The idea of home was the driving force for the
content.  Most of the songs speak to the idea of ku‘u home, a personal,
endearing way to refer to our place in the world. It becomes ku‘u because we
attach to it our familiarity, what the wind and the rain are like, how the
mountains smell, what is in the river, who our people are, our attachment to
them and the things we have learned by being of a place,” Jerry says.

 

Jerry mixes “All of That Love from Here” with his signature song, “Ku‘u Home ‘O
Kahalu‘u,” as well as “Tewe Tewe,” a playful song that pays tribute to the
slippery o‘opu. He also performs “Seabird” and “Ku‘u Makamaka,” among other
songs.  Joining Jerry in the PBS Hawaii studio are musicians Kamuela Kimokeo
and Hoku Zuttermeister.

DROPPING BACK IN

Complicated Lives

Sun., March 22, 6:00 pm

New

 

Nearly 40 million adults in America – 1 in 5 – lack a high school diploma or GED
credential. In this four-part series focusing on America’s dropout crisis,
we’ll meet some of America’s dropouts, come to understand the issues they face,
and learn about the people and programs helping them drop back in and move on
with their educations and lives.

 

Complicated Lives

The challenges faced by many dropouts go far beyond academics. Most dropouts are
unemployed or under-employed, and many live in poverty. Meeting the many needs
of their complicated lives is a key to success for many adult education programs.

The Vaccine War

Tues., March 24, 10:00 pm

Encore

 

Public health scientists and clinicians tout vaccines as one of the greatest
achievements of modern medicine. But for many ordinary Americans vaccines have
become controversial. Young parents are concerned at the sheer number of shots
and follow alternative vaccination schedules. Other parents are choosing not to
vaccinate their kids at all. And some advocacy groups view vaccines as
responsible for alarming rises in certain disorders, including ADHD and autism.
This is the vaccine war: On one side sits scientific medicine and the public
health establishment; on the other, a populist coalition of parents,
celebrities, politicians and activists. It’s a war that increasingly takes
place on the Internet with both sides using the latest social media tools to
win the hearts and minds of the public.

almost nowhere else. For a year, wildlife cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson
