If you get hooked, which we’re betting you will, you can be comforted by the fact that a second season is already in the works in Britain.

On Q September 2012 KQED Public Radio KQED Public Television

A fascinating portrayal of birth, life, death and a community on the brink of huge social change.

Call the Midwife

KQED.org

Raised in wealth in the English countryside, she’s spent time in Paris and could have been anything. But she chose to become a nurse, and now, as a newly qualified midwife, Jenny’s come to work with an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus House — in the poorest area of the city. Based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife is a moving and intimate story of midwifery and families in London’s East End in the 1950s. Here the streets teem with children — families of six to ten children are commonplace — and with just one eight-bed maternity ward to serve the whole district, most deliveries take place at home. Few homes have indoor sanitation, and none have hot running water. The six-part drama follows Jenny as she meets her patients for the first time — women like Conchita, who is on her 25th pregnancy, and Mary, a prostitute and pregnant at just 15. At first shocked by the appalling conditions, Jenny soon learns to love and admire her patients and their families as well as the sisters and fellow midwives as they all witness the daily drama of life in this vibrant community.

When Jenny Lee first arrives in London’s East End, she knows nothing about hardship, poverty or, indeed, life itself.

There’s Something in the Aria Experience amazing operas on KQED.

From the delicate melodies of Mozart to the deep tonal layers of Richard Strauss to what is, perhaps, the greatest musical achievement of all, Wagner’s Ring, KQED is your destination for breathtaking opera. Grand costumes, epic stagings, world-class voices and the world’s greatest operas make for an unforgettable fall on television. Join Wotan, Brünnhilde, Salome, Papageno, Desdemona, the Queen of the Night, Suor Angelica, Gianni Schicchi, Siegfried, Iago and Otello in performances from the Metropolitan Opera and the San Francisco Opera. Great Performances at the Met “Wagner’s Ring Cycle” airs September 10–14 at 8pm on KQED Plus. The operas repeat on KQED 9 at 11am or noon on four consecutive Sundays beginning September 16. San Francisco Opera’s The Magic Flute, Salome, Il Trittico and Otello air Thursdays at 8pm on KQED 9, beginning September 20.

Opera star Frederica von Stade hosts the third season of KQED’s co-productions with San Francisco Opera. The mezzosoprano spoke to On Q’s editor about her career and her involvement in local youth music education and programs. What appealed to you about hosting the KQED programs? David’s invitation. [David Gockley is San Francisco Opera’s general director.] I have such a high regard for him. I’d probably do anything he asked me. We go back such a long way, and I’ve seen the magic he’s created in Houston first and here. The highdefinition broadcasts open up the magic opera world to so many more people.

Have you seen that singers approach their performances differently if they are being filmed? Well, of course, it helps if you are Anna Netrebko and you’re gorgeous, but I haven’t seen a great difference of technique. I think the challenge is for the producer. Deciding what shots to use. I think the work they do is brilliant. I just love sitting and being

able to have popcorn while watching opera. That just seems so perfect. I’d take popcorn over champagne any day! Is there an opera role that you’d like to sing? You know, I’m often asked that and there’s nothing I covet. I feel I’ve had better than I deserve. I think everyone, especially if you play boys all your life, would like to do the stabbing scene from Tosca just for the fun of it, but no, I feel fortunate. Well, maybe a tenor role! A tenor role would be fun. Tell me about your involvement in local arts education. About seven or eight years ago, I met this marvelous nun at a charity event who told me she had no music program at her school in West Oakland — St. Martin de Porres. I said, “I’ll come over tomorrow.” Everyone is affected positively by music. No matter what music you listen to. And for kids that have very little and have very complicated lives, it offers them even more.

Support for opera on KQED is provided by a generous gift from Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem.

At St. Martin we have choir and violin. Violin, which was my idea, starts in kindergarten. Maybe that wasn’t such a good idea — it is adorable for the eyes, but torture on the ears. But I have to say, we do have two or three kids who are pretty darn good. And when they hold an instrument as fragile as a violin and when that sound goes in their ear, something happens to them. So I find the teachers and then I go in and help. I pass the violins out and try and discipline the children — although when I’m in charge they are swinging from the chandeliers! I just love it. I wish I had more organizational skills though. What I do is very humble and helter-skelter. But it’s got to be done. You have to go at it with the mindset that something is better than nothing. It doesn’t take as much as people think. Read the complete interview online at kqed.org/onq-exclusives.

Point Lobos State Natural Preserve

California’s memories are captured in its treasured state parks. But who had the foresight to capture these memories in a state parks system? How did California’s state parks evolve into the largest state park system in the country? And how will challenges and obstacles today affect the future of California’s state parks and other protected lands across the country? These questions are answered in the inspiring film California Forever, written and directed by Academy Award nominee

David Vassar. He, along with co-producer Sally Kaplan, conceived the idea for the film while watching the battle between conservationists and developers over the proposed Orange County Toll Road, which would have paved over a portion of San Onofre State Beach. Vassar and Kaplan felt compelled to tell the story of California’s state parks as a way to remind viewers of these places and their value. The two-part PBS special and KQED presentation highlights the discovery and creation of California’s state parks system and celebrates those whose passion and commitment helped preserve and protect our parks for future generations.

New investigative special focuses on climate change and California agriculture.

Listen for related radio programs on The California Report and check kqednews.org for special online features.

Were you surprised by some of the estimates showing the impact of climate change on agriculture? No, not considering the vulnerabilities of the farm sector. You might be referring to the U.C. Davis study projecting a possible billion-dollar-plus impact by 2030 — and

Many people don’t think about farms when thinking about climate change. How do you go about conveying the importance of this issue to viewers and listeners in your coverage? Many believe that ultimately, it’s going to show up on your grocery bill. If cherry crops are failing because the springtime nights weren’t cool enough or farmers are having to fallow tomato fields for lack of water, at some point it becomes simple supply and demand and food prices will be affected. Many people still think of climate impacts as something their grandkids will have to contend with, but one longtime grower told us he believes that effects of a changing climate will start systematically hitting U.S. consumers within a decade.

Time has gone by and Mom and Dad are still sweet on each other after 60 years. Last year they moved in with my family - too many stairs in their home. We all happily gave up our prime spots on the sofa so they could cuddle nightly, watch the news, and smooch goodnight. It’s a blessing to have them with us, but for me, it’s also like adding two more kid’s worth of work.

remember, that’s just from one aspect of a changing climate: increased salinity from rising sea levels. But as we’ve discussed, climate change will have — many argue is having — multiple impacts.

KQED Public Television

What inspired you to report on this issue? We’ve heard a lot about the potential urban impacts of a changing climate — heat waves, rising seas and so forth. The threats facing farms and ranches have been underreported, and yet agriculture is a billion-dollar business in California and among the most vulnerable to a quirky climate. Water supplies will be critical, of course, but there will be impacts from higher temperatures and invasive pests, as well. I think few people realize how fragile crops can be when the conditions start changing, and as you know, California is “the nation’s salad bowl.”

As other news organizations have cut back on in-depth reporting, KQED News has been focused on providing informative, engaging coverage of important issues.

State of the RE:Union with Al Letson Tri-Cities/Walla Walla, WA Wednesday, September 12, 8pm The Tri-Cities of Washington are Richland, Pasco and Kennewick—three cities clustered near one another in the vast plains and deserts of Washington state, to the east of the Cascade Mountains. It’s a region that seems like it would have little to attract newcomers — it’s largely remote, prone to dust storms, not close to any major city. But over the decades, this area has drawn people from the world over. This episode explores the secret history of the area, the surprising mix of residents and what’s drawn them here and why.

Sylvia Earle, Time magazine’s first Hero for the Planet and former chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has spent so much time on the ocean floor, colleagues refer to her as “Her Deepness.” San Jose native Amy Chow (pictured), who was a member of the Magnificent Seven — the first American gymnastics team to win an Olympic gold medal, is now a practicing pediatrician in Palo Alto. Coming in October, meet 92-year-old Yosh Uchida. He’s been coaching judo at San Jose State University for more than 60 years and he was the first coach of a U.S. Olympic judo team.

Sound Tracks There’s nothing like Sound Tracks on television — a musical adventure series that combines top-notch journalism with travel, soul-satisfying music and a sense of humor. Sound Tracks tells the stories behind the music and profiles the artists who create it. The magazine-format show features three stories and a special “global hit” performance at the end of the episode.
