Celebrating Independence Day!

Join 360 North this 4th of July as we celebrate our Independence with Jefferson & Adams: A Stage Play, written by Howard Ginsberg and based on his original play, is the story of the turbulent 52-year friendship of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Adams’ wife, Abigail. Based on the collection of letters between these prolific founding fathers – and one equally astute wife – the play fuses compelling political thoughts with passionate personal beliefs.

Jefferson & Adams traces the period from the inception of the Revolution through the politics of two presidents to the wisdom of men who have lived long lives. It is both poignant and fitting that Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died in their respective homes on July 4, 1826 – the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Two chances to watch - 11 a.m. or 5 p.m!

When it arrived at Schwabacher’s dock on the Seattle waterfront in 1897, burdened with her ton of Yukon gold, Campbell Church, Sr. was among the 100,000 men from every corner of the globe who caught the prospecting fever and set out for Chilkoot Pass.

Then at 9 PM it's all about salmon with The Great Age of Salmon!
This 30-minute documentary brings to life a fascinating era in the history of commercial fishing at the last frontier. Featuring film footage dating back to 1926 narrated by industry pioneer Stan Tarrant, The Great Age of Salmon is the story of the early fishing industry in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, and of the Pacific American Fisheries company of Bellingham.

Juneau Wearable Art DVD

Juneau's most fashionable art event celebrated its 10th anniversary this year and is now available to purchase at Shop 360 North! The 2010 theme was Circus of Rain and outfits went far beyond a regular fashion show, blending all sorts of artistic expression into wearable designs. The event has grown over the past decade into one of Juneau's most beloved artistic events of the year.

Nancy DeCherney, Juneau Arts and Humanities Director, was very excited to offer this year's show on DVD. "What I think is the most fun about this is the creativity that it seems to unleash in people you know," she said. "It's a real opportunity for everyday normal people and artists. It just seems to bring out the wackiness and creativity in people."

Gavel to Gavel History

Gavel to Gavel Alaska is produced by KTOO-TV in Juneau, and started on the first day of the legislative session, January 19th. Cameras in the state capitol televise unedited, start-to-finish coverage of House and Senate floor sessions, key committee hearings, news conferences and other state government activity. The television service, which began in 1994, is broadcast over the air in Anchorage and Juneau, and is carried by cable systems statewide and streamed live on the Internet. Live Legislative coverage is scheduled from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. each weekday, with expanded coverage when legislative activity warrants. The City and Borough of Juneau has once again provided a major grant to support the coverage. GCI Cable carries Gavel to Gavel Alaska in every GCI cable market in Alaska. Alaska Communications Systems provides the Internet service.

Gavel to Gavel Alaska began as a two-week demonstration project during the First Session of the Nineteenth Alaska Legislature in 1995. The next year, the legislature allowed full-time coverage and honored Gavel to Gavel Alaska with a Legislative Citation. We began full-time coverage our tenth Regular Legislative Session in January 2005, and the Governor marked our tenth anniversary with an Executive Proclamation.
