Whatever your holiday tradition this time of year, WGBH is here to help you celebrate—at home with your family, out in your community and on the go. We also have created some local holiday traditions of our own, starting with 89.7 WGBH host Brian O’Donovan’s popular A Christmas Celtic Sojourn live concerts across massachusetts and new Hampshire throughout the month (see page 26). “the concerts are an extension of the annual Christmas edition of my radio show, A Celtic Sojourn,” Brian says. “they’re a blend of music, poetry, dance and storytelling in which i play the role of Fear an Tí, ‘the man of the house.’ We strive to create an atmosphere that welcomes you into our home.” And what a home it is, filled with world-class Celtic talent, from the groundbreaking singing group solas to virtuoso harpist and singer maeve Gilchrist. to spread the joy even further, you can hear one of the captivating Christmas Celtic Sojourn concerts from Boston’s Cutler majestic theatre on 89.7 WGBH on saturday, december 21, a performance we’re also sharing with public radio listeners nationwide through Pri. this year, we also will be sharing more of the Hub’s classical holiday happenings than ever before on 99.5 WCrB and classicalnewengland.org (page 27). Highlights include the Boston Children’s Chorus: All Choir Holiday Concert; Eternal Echoes for Hanukkah with WCrB host James david Jacobs and new england Conservatory professor Hankus netsky exploring Jewish sacred music; and Handel’s Messiah from the Handel and Haydn society with Harry Christophers conducting this memorable live performance from symphony Hall. Of course, the holidays also can bring a certain measure of family drama, and we have plenty of that, too! Can’t wait for next month’s premiere of Downton Abbey season 4, our WGBH Masterpiece co-production with Carnival Films? Unwrap some tantalizing teasers from the series’ creators and cast members in this month’s Return to Downton Abbey (page 10). Or enjoy our Call the Midwife Holiday Special (page 18). this issue of Explore! (in print and our video-rich digital edition at wgbh.org/explore) is filled with programs to keep you and your family inspired and entertained throughout this festive time of year…a trove of seasonal delights made possible by your generous annual support. With thanks and best wishes for a joyful season,

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin Guide rating. Sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimages, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar. The film chronicles Jiro’s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world and as a loving yet complicated father. Independent Lens/Jiro Dreams of Sushi Monday, 12/23 at 10pm on WGBH 2

A new look at an old job, The Calling takes viewers into the world of seminaries to tell entertaining and compelling personal stories of how faith is lived today.

Rise of Christianity

WGBH’s Frontline presents the epic story of the rise of Christianity. drawing upon historical evidence, the series explores the life and death of Jesus, and the men and women whose belief, conviction and martyrdom created the religion we now know as Christianity. through interviews with 12 scholars—new testament theologians, archaeologists and historians— the series presents their contributions to this intellectual revolution. For example, they talk about the quest for the historical Jesus: What can we really know? And how do we know it? Part 1 charts the epic story of the rise of Christianity, from the life of Jesus to the period that followed his death; Part 2 documents the rise of Christianity from a small Jewish sect to an official religion of the roman empire.

89.7 WGBH Boston Public Radio Sing, Dance and Be Merry

A Christmas Celtic Sojourn has given local fans of traditional Irish music, dance and storytelling a home to return to every holiday season for the past 10 years. Now beginning its second decade, the annual concert created by WGBH’s Brian O’Donovan once again features some of the best musicians, singers and dancers from the Celtic world and beyond, all ready to take to stages in Boston, Worcester, and Rockport, MA, and Derry, NH. “We strive to create an atmosphere that welcomes you into our home,” says O’Donovan, who based the annual concerts on the holiday edition of his radio show A Celtic Sojourn, which airs Saturdays at 3pm on 89.7 WGBH. “We sing and tell stories about times past,” O’Donovan says. “The great thing about this time of year is that it gives people permission to be sentimental. We can acknowledge the emotions attached to the season and allow ourselves to go with them.” This year’s lineup is full of topnotch, professional talent led by music director Seamus Egan and artistic director Paula Plum. Playing at the contemporary edge of traditional music, the groundbreaking group Solas is returning along with Steve Hickman, who wowed audiences with his use of body percussion and fiddling in 2007. Maeve Gilchrist will bring her harp wizardry from her native Scotland, and Mariel Vandersteel will showcase the distinctive musical influences of Norway with her eightstring Hardanger fiddle.

Joining Mick McAuley, O’Donovan, and his wife, Lindsay, on vocals will be the lead singer of the acclaimed group Voco, Moira Smiley, and Maureen McMullan, Scottish singer and star of the PBS special, Highland Heartbeat. There’s plenty for dance fans as well. “World champion dancer and Riverdance star Liam Harney has cleared his international touring schedule to choreograph and perform in this year’s show,” O’Donovan says. “And what would Christmas Celtic be without the young dancers from Liam’s Academy of Irish Dance in Walpole? They have truly become part of the tradition.” If you can’t make one of the performances, listen for the radio broadcast of one of the performances (shared nationwide via Public Radio International) Saturday, 12/21 at 3:30pm on 89.7 WGBH. “I can’t wait for the curtain to rise on this year’s show,” O’Donovan says. “With the mix of great music and dance performed by such amazing artists, and the inevitable surprise guests and performances, it promises to be a Christmas Celtic Sojourn to remember.” For more information on concert dates, venues and tickets, visit www.wgbh.org/celtic A Christmas Celtic Sojourn 89.7 WGBH broadcast live performances Sat, 12/21 at 3:30pm Sat, 12/14 to Sun, 12/22 (times vary)

WCAI, Cape and Islands NPR Station Catch Up with News Roundup By Mindy Todd, WCAI host and managing director for editorial

Every Friday, we catch up on the week’s local and national news beginning at 9am with News Roundup on The Point, hosted by senior reporter and editor Sean Corcoran. Journalists from the Cape, Islands and South Coast join Sean to discuss the stories generating headlines across our region, often offering fresh analysis, including previously unreported details and background information. “We know our listeners value local news, and the News Roundup is an opportunity to talk in-depth about issues they care about,” Sean says. “I consistently hear from listeners how pleased they are that they can catch up on local news in just a short period of time, while also gaining some insights that may not have been contained in the original reporting of a story.” WCAI is the only news station in the region that airs a show entirely dedicated to the news of the week. Discussions focus on big issues such as the proposal to install wind turbines in Nantucket Sound, the controversial

use of herbicides on Cape Cod or the threat that wastewater poses to the environment. But Sean also discusses hyperlocal issues, such as Town Meeting results, local politics and community events. “I spent 10 years working in newspapers before moving to public radio,” Sean says, “so I really enjoy talking with print and online journalists about their work and its significance.” Paul Pronovost, editor of the Cape Cod Times, says he and his staff have enjoyed participating in the News Roundup for more than a decade. “We look forward to it every week,” he says. “It’s an opportunity to put the week’s news in a smart, rear-view context and a great way to connect with the folks on the Cape and Islands.” Going on the air every Friday has been a valuable experience for Times’ writers and editors, according to Paul. “The News Roundup helped us be ahead of the curve when it comes to the multitasking required by a modern newsroom,” he says. “A journalist today has to be comfortable delivering the news in ways that, frankly, might be outside his or her comfort zone. The News Roundup has helped our reporters and editors sharpen some of those skills.” The conversation continues at 10am, when host Diane Rehm welcomes the nation’s top journalists to tackle major national and international stories.
