To children living in the rubble of post-war Germany, it was candy from heaven.  Some saw it as a sign that somebody in America cared about them.  To Colonel Gail “Hal” Halvorsen, who became known worldwide as the Candy Bomber, the Berlin Airlift was healing balm on the wounds of war.  He and his fellow American pilots dropped more than two million tons of supplies and 23 tons of candy to German citizens and children during the Berlin Airlift. KTWU presents the inspiring story of the Utah pilot whose simple gesture of goodwill won the hearts of a former enemy and made him a hero to people around the world. Watch “THE CANDY BOMBER” on Tuesday, December 2, at 9 p.m. on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1.

Hetty Wainthropp is a retired working-class woman from North West England, who has a knack for jumping to conclusions and solving crimes of varying bafflement which often are too minor to concern the police. Although on occasion her husband offers assistance, he more often than not tends to the home while Hetty gads about the countryside with young Geoffrey in search of resolution and justice. Patricia Routledge of KEEPING UP APPEARANCES stars in this gentle British crime/comedy drama series on KTWU! HETTY WAINTHROPP INVESTIGATES airs on Sundays at 10 PM on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1.
