Madagascar is the hottest of biodiversity hot spots. The island is home to approximately five percent of all the species on earth. Four out of five of them are found nowhere else, including dozens of species of tenrecs and lemurs that have evolved over tens of millions of years.

In a home movie of Bill Maynard’s 91st birthday party, more than a dozen friends are gathered inside a neighbor’s house in Provincetown. Maynard is sitting in the center of the room in a brown, leather chair. Cake is brought out. He blows out the candles. And Maynard starts talking about his life -- about how he got the chance to become a painter.

Baseball is a sport that requires a lot of connectedness on the field. For players in the Cape Cod Baseball League, this connection doesn’t always come easy. For most, their in-season enemies become their teammates. But for three sets of players, this is another team they’ll play on together.

Much has changed in the busy world of movie-making since the Woods Hole Film Festival began a quarter century ago.  On The Point, festival director Judy Laster and assistant director John Gamache talk about what's new and what's old at this year's event.  WCAI's Mindy Todd hosts.

Thomas Bena began questioning whether huge "trophy" mansion houses were appropriate for Martha's Vineyard, or for any coastal community, and he started documenting his search for answers. One of the outcomes is his documentary film One Big Home. Thomas Bena joins Mindy Todd on The Point in our Woods Hole studios.
