KLRU has great programs for kids and great programs for adults, but it’s not easy to find programs that all family members can enjoy together. Each month, KLRU identifies a Family Choice program from our schedule that will interest and engage family members, ages 7 and up.

This month, KLRU features Peace: The Handraised Polar Bear. On December 2, 1999, a polar bear named Peace was born at Japan’s Tobe Zoological Park. After his mother rejected the cub, zoo keeper Atsuhiro Takaichi took on the task of parenting and subsequently succeeded in hand-raising a polar bear for the first time ever in Japan and just the third time in the world. Peace: The Handraised Polar Bear chronicles five years in the life of the young cub and the caring zoo keeper.
