After a decade of collecting footage and interviews, KUCB will premiere its new documentary on June 13.

The film is called "Tanadgusim Adan Chiilulix: Revisiting the Lost Villages of the Aleutian Islands." It's about a project that brought Unangax̂ survivors of World War II back to the communities they were forced to leave during the war — and then never allowed to resettle.

KUCB's Laura Kraegel sat down with fellow reporter Zoë Sobel to learn more about the documentary inspired by the Lost Villages Project.

Unalaska students were recently featured on an episode of the Iditapod, a podcast about the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race produced by Alaska Public Media and KNOM.

Middle school students crafted questions about the thousand-mile race after KUCB staff taught a lesson about mushing and radio reporting.

Here's the result of the kids' work in a segment from the show.
