Alaska's History - It's Magic!

What does a psychic duck have in common with Alaska’s governors? Plenty, especially when they’re all a part of Alaska’s History – It’s Magic, a magical presentation highlighting various moments in Alaska’s history. Watch Alaska’s History – It’s Magic on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 8pm!

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.

Starting tonight at 8pm!
“Great Nature” (Episode Five)

To battle unemployment in the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt creates the Civilian Conservation Corps, which spawns a “golden age” for the parks through major renovation projects. In a groundbreaking study, a young NPS biologist named George Melendez Wright discovers widespread abuses of animal habitats and pushes the service to reform its wildlife policies. Congress narrowly passes a bill to protect the Everglades in Florida as a national park — the first time a park has been created solely to preserve an ecosystem, as opposed to scenic beauty. As America becomes entrenched in World War II, Roosevelt is pressured to open the parks to mining, grazing and lumbering. The president also is subjected to a storm of criticism for expanding the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming by accepting a gift of land secretly purchased by John D. Rockefeller Jr.
