Wild Hawaii

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

It’s hard to avoid the plethora of pro­grams on travel, food, sport and Christ­mas cheer at this time of year. Even more of a chal­lenge is find­ing one you haven’t seen be­fore. Hawaii is on my bucket list, but this two-part doc­u­men­tary goes be­yond the scenery and the shop­ping. In fact it makes Hawaii out to be a some­what spooky des­ti­na­tion, given it’s home to Ki­lauea, one of the world’s most ac­tive vol­ca­noes, mega waves and alarm­ing fauna. Tonight the first of two episodes looks at how the archipelago mor­phed from bar­ren waste­land to a trop­i­cal par­adise where 95 per cent of the flora is unique.
