Premieres Wed., Feb. 23, 7:30 pm

For more than a decade at PBS Hawaiʻi, we have used the tagline “home is here.” In an effort to learn and share more about our home, we have created our newest series, fittingly titled Home is Here. In this series, we travel across Hawaiʻi to highlight the people, cultures, history and moʻolelo (stories) that make these islands we call home so special.
Coffee is big business in the islands, but crops and farms are under threat from disease and pests. And for years, there’s been a battle to make sure coffee packages with labels that read “grown in Hawaiʻi,” actually contain beans that are grown here.
Join the discussion on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI (Thurs., Feb. 24, 7:30 pm). You can phone in a question or leave us a comment on our Facebook livestream during the program. INSIGHTS also streams live on

Final thought… Have you ever seen what happens when a beehive is disturbed? It can be frightening, especially if you are allergic to bee stings and carry an EpiPen with you at all times. A year ago this week, despite being EpiPen-less (I’m pretty sure that’s not a word), I introduced myself to a swarm of talented bees at PBS Hawaiʻi, pollinators excited to fly again and nourish communities across Hawaiʻi. Since then, the hive has been alive with activity and productivity. On February 23 at 7:30 p.m., PBS Hawaiʻi will unveil one of the many blossoms created by the swarm’s fruits of labor, with the premiere of Home is Here… and we’re just getting started…
