The National Winston Churchill Museum in Fulton is hoping to get more visitors through a new documentary.
The film was shown Tuesday night at the Jefferson City Capitol City Cinema as an inaugural presentation for the theater. It was preceded by a reception at Capitol City Cork and Provisions, a new restaurant that is connected to the theater.
Rob Havers is the Director of the Churchill Museum. He said he hopes the film will help with tourism.
Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre. This week, we bring you a detective story by Robert Barr. It parodies Conan Doyle's famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. Our hero is Eugene Valmont, whose name is probably not familiar to you. He's a private detective in New York, though for several years he served as the head of the Secret Service in Washington. If you've never heard of him, it's because the records of his exploits are buried with other classified documents, which have remained undisclosed for national security reasons.
The novel Eighty Days dives into competing journalists Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland’s pursuit to break the record for fastest journey around the world in 1889. Author Matthew Goodman creates a narrative history on the 28,000 mile quest that got the attention of the nation. KBIA’s Tony Nochim sat down with Matthew Goodman while he was in Columbia.

In keeping with our tradition of bringing you original adaptations of obscure stories, tonight, we present "Wanted: A Wife," by Carlotta M. Hardy.
It was first published in the "All-Story Weekly" in 1916. Our research on Ms. Hardy turned up virtually nothing. This is the only story we could find by her on the web, and there is no biographical information available.
Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theater, brought to you in conjunction with KBIA. In this episode, we bring back two of our favorites characters, Bertie and Jeeves, in yet another comic tale by a master of the frivolous, P.G. Wodehouse. This tale is called "Jeeves and the Chump Cyril." As usual, Bertie and Jeeves are in a feud over wardrobe selections, Bertie's Aunt Agatha is hanging over him like a dark shadow, and there is a friend in need -- in this case, Cyril.
The 6th annual Citizen Jane film festival kicked off Friday at Stephen’s College. The festival will celebrate women filmmakers and—this year—adds a participatory summit to kick start a conversation about getting more in filmmaking.
This year, the festival held the first ever “Citizen Jane Summit” on Thursday.
Programming Director, Kerri Yost, told Thursday’s crowd she was proud of this cadence of friendliness.
“I really feel that everybody here creates what it is for us,” Yost said. “And it sounds really silly, but we’re trying to make a large change right now in the film industry and we truly believe that could come from the people.”
The summit is just one of the many events at the Citizen Jane festival that is not film.
The Missouri State Penitentiary has cancelled its tours for the rest of the 2013 season, a move that could hinder potential tourism in Jefferson City.
The Jefferson City Convention and Visitors Bureau announced Wednesday that state testing found a mold problem at the penitentiary. The state prohibits anyone from entering the building until it’s cleared up. Convention and Visitors Bureau spokesperson Ryan Burns said she hopes the closing will not keep future visitors away.
From experience I can confirm that it’s hard work to become decent on a musical instrument. No matter the musical genre or instrument, it takes consistent practice to become listenable. I’m not saying I’ve gotten listenable yet with my bass and guitar playing.
