Heather's WHRO Passport Picks
August 4, 2022
Welcome August, the last and warmest of our summer months. I'm sure many of you enjoy the outdoors, but it's been hard to appreciate nature with the heat. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed The Green Planet. It is a visual treat, and Sir David Attenborough's commentary is terrific while soothing at the same time. I have two sons, ages 9 and 17, so it's rare to find a program that they both enjoy, and this series hit the spot! So please check it out; it also works beautifully to stream in the background while you focus on other projects.
Now onto the shows!
