Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service

LOCAL INTEREST: "Hawaiian Quilting," noon, PBS. This week's show focuses on Hilo teacher Doris Nosaka and her Waimea Quilt Club.

LOCAL INTEREST: "Emme & Friends," 6:30 p.m. Producer Chris Lee, whose "Final Fantasy" movie is in theaters now, is the guest.

TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE: "Women Docs" premiere (10 p.m.) and "Beyond Chance" season-opener (11 p.m.), both Lifetime. "Women Docs" follows real-life doctors. Tonight's opener introduces four of them at a New York hospital. Then "Beyond Chance" offers sweet bits of coincidence: In one case, after his trip is delayed many times, a man arrives just in time to rescue tiny twins from a car submerged in water.

"Cubix" premiere, 10:30 a.m., WB (seen on KFVE). The story here is standard enough but the look and mood is delightful. A 13-year-old boy has just moved to Bubble Town, home of a robot factory.

"Trading Spaces' Most Outrageous Designs," 8-11 p.m., The Learning Channel. Here are three of the more unusual hours from a show in which people let someone give their room an offbeat design. Catch the reaction when a woman learns someone has decorated her walls with (really) moss.
