I recently received an email from one of the filmmakers of Polynesian Power which will be shown on PBS this fall and locally in Hawai'i this Thursday, September 28th at 8:00 PM.
Aloha, Talofa everyone!
Good news! - The film "Polynesian Power: Islanders in Pro Football"
(narrated by "The Rock") has been licensed from ESPN for the national PBS schedule. This recently completed PBS version features a new 10 minute update section with Pisa Tinoisamoa and Isaac Sopoaga as NFL Pros and a new riveting montage of action shots from NFL Films.
Attached is a postcard that gives links to PBS scheduling and to PIC (Pacific Islanders In Communications) who are the official presenters of this new PBS version. The window for PBS licensing is a one year term - which means that it is up to each regional PBS Station to program the show as they see fit during the course of the next year. So please keep up with your regional PBS programming by going to www.pbs.org to find out if the show is scheduled for broadcast in your area.
Please email this postcard info to all those who may be interested.
Also for the folks in Hawaii-nei:
***** HAWAII PBS BROADCAST PREMIERE IS SLATED FOR SEPTEMBER 28th at 8 PM on KHET (Channel 10)!!! *****
Please mark your calendars and DVD/VHS Recorders!
Thank you all for your support in making this film happen!
