Pau Hana Years

Thurs., June 2 at 8:30 pm

Pau Hana Years aired on KHET-TV, now PBS Hawaiʻi, for 16 years, from 1966 until 1982. The program was hosted by Bob Barker and Charlotte Simmons and highlighted Hawaiʻi’s older generation. Every Thursday in June, we will highlight two half-hour episodes of Pau Hana Years, featuring interviews and performances from some of Hawaiʻi’s most beloved figures in their later years.
In 1972, Bob Barker traveled to the Friendly Isle for a celebration of the Golden Jubilee of Homesteading on Molokaʻi. The festivities, marking 50 years since the first homesteaders on Molokaʻi, featured song and dance from local artists, including a performance from the legendary George Helm.
This is a big election year in Hawaiʻi. Voters will cast ballots for a new governor, a U.S. Senator, mayoral races in Maui and Kauaʻi counties, all 76 seats in the state legislature, and more. Who are the front runners?
Join the discussion on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI (Thurs., June 2, 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
On this special episode of HIKI NŌ (Tues., May 31, 7:30 pm), Limitless Aloha: STN in Hawaiʻi, teachers, students and members of the education community tell the story of the first-ever Hawaiʻi-based hub of the annual STN (Student Television Network) conference and competition.
Hurricane season is upon us once again. On Wednesday’s episode of our audio podcast WHAT SCHOOL YOU WENT?, we revisit our October 2021 episode with Olena Heu, discussing the memories of Hurricane ʻIniki in 1992. Click HERE for resources on this hurricane season.

THE NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT (Sun., May 29, 7:00 pm) pays tribute to the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, their families at home and all those who have given their lives for our country. The program is hosted by Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise and features performances by Lea Salonga, Norm Lewis, Craig Morgan, Rhiannon Giddens, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Pia Toscano.
SKY BLOSSOM: Diaries of the Next Greatest Generation (Mon., May 30, 9:00 pm) highlights the challenges that these individuals face caring for loved ones who are veterans, particularly during the ongoing pandemic, and sheds a raw, uplifting view into the lives of 24.5 million children and millennials who step forward as caregiving heroes.

Final Thought… Hawaiʻi recently hosted the annual Student Television Network Competition at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, a three-day event that featured some 200 Hawaiʻi students, competing against 3,000 other students from across the nation who joined the event virtually. The competition between some of the best student storytellers in the country was intense, with tight deadlines to meet, under challenging conditions. How did Hawaiʻi students do? Join us for a very special PBS Hawaiʻi/HIKI NŌ special—LIMITLESS ALOHA: STN IN HAWAIʻI on Tuesday, May 31 at 7:30 on PBS Hawaiʻi and live streaming on
As PBS Hawaiʻi Vice President of Learning Initiative Robert Pennybacker says, “It tells the story of several sectors of the community coming together to do the impossible—all for the sake of our children’s education.  It proves that when it comes to the education of our keiki, we can move mountains.”
