This feature-length History Channel documentary surveys the tumultuous but colorful history of Hawaii, the 50th state in the Union. Utilizing a combination of elements including maps, illustrations and archival footage, the program travels back in time by several centuries and touches on events including the area's initial discovery, its first contact with outsiders (and the culture clash that erupted as a consequence of this), the arrival and influence of figures including King Kamahameha and Captain Cook, the voyages of the Polynesians and much more - before ultimately discussing the area's incorporation as one of the United States in August 1959.
