The program has been presented to thousands of young people and their families in schools and libraries in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and other Southeast Alaska communities, stimulating lots of laughter and wonder as Alaskan history comes alive through the medium of magic.
“Magic can help give meaning to historical events and facts, supplying kids with another way to enjoy their studies,” said Jeff Brown, a Juneau-based magician who developed the show. “It helps provide another handle to support their education, while at the same time providing a healthy dose of entertainment.”
The show features magical effects highlighting Alaska’s Native cultures, its Russian heritage, the Gold Rush and more, taking a live studio audience of kids and their families on a wild ride full of audience participation, amazement and plenty of amusement, gathering praise from kids, families, and educators.
The program was made possible with the help of the Rasmuson Foundation, The Alaska Humanities Forum, and the Douglas-Dornan Foundation, and was recorded before a live studio audience.

In the 1990's, street skateboarding was on the rise, it even overshadowed the once dominant type of skateboarding called "vert" - as the preferred style. As street skating was quickly progressing, so was the small town Wasilla Alaska. By some statistics during this time frame, Wasilla was the fastest growing city in the United States. This movie tries to capture the surge of skateboarders that mirrored the growth of this frontier city during the 1990's.

This new report notes opportunities offered under a unified public broadcasting model:
• A statewide, cross-platform production team
• An increase in public broadcasting’s reach in rural communities
• A unified voice in support of public broadcasting statewide
• The ability to invest in emerging media for content delivery
• The continuation of high-quality PBS and NPR programming throughout the state
The KTOO, KUAC, and APTI boards will then make a final decision on the unification this year and if approved, the transformation could begin as soon as July 2010.

Airing TODAY starting at 4pm! Inuit men have experienced many changes to their way of life in just two generations. This has sometimes left Inuit men feeling lost and unsure of their place in the family and community. Men need a voice. They have important things to say and contributions to make. Programs and services for men – many created and led by men – are giving them an opportunity to seek help, better understand their needs and strengths, and revive their traditions and culture.
In "Angutiilli qanuiliqpat? – How are we as men?", viewers will see stories of community programs that are helping Inuit men to improve their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Tune in to 360 North today at 4pm for first day of this 3-day event!
Airing this week on 360 North, Qanuqtuurniq is being coordinated by the Inuit Tuttarvingat, the Inuit-specific centre of the National Aboriginal Health Organization. It involves a project team of health promotion experts, researchers, Inuit organizations, community members, and northern broadcasters, as well as several working groups that are helping to develop the content.
aired in the Inuit language with English captions.

They're ready for more videos, essays, podcasts, photos and songs with ideas on whether we should move away from fossil fuels and if so, how it should be done. That's the Planet Forward mission: using the web and television to give citizens a chance to discuss their ideas with experts and policymakers, because changes now on the drawing board are big ones, which could affect most of us and therefore call out for input from all of us.
