This is our full one hour special Ukraine episode that my cinematographer Ian Levasseur and I (Ian Grant) filmed last September for our series Culture Quest on PBS. It's all about what people across Ukraine’s cultural spectrum are doing to protest the war, inspire their fellow Ukrainians, and to remind the rest of the world why Ukraine is worth fighting for. It was an incredible trip on a number of levels and while there was no shortage of hard things to see and talk about, there was also no question about the resilience of the people we met with, and the determination of the Ukrainian people to fight for their country and their culture.
