Episode Description
Fred Rogers is a television phenomenon. He is a 39-year-old ordained minister, an educator, graduate musician, and a quiet, gentle, unselfconscious young man who possesses a mysterious and quite remarkable attraction for pre-school children. When his daily half-hour program, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," was threatened with cancellation for lack of funds last spring in Boston, station WGBH-TV was deluged with protests. When Rogers himself made a personal appearance there, 6,000 pint-sized fans turned out to see him. Since then, Rogers' program (a composite of songs, conversation, puppet neighbors, and people neighbors, palatable lessons and ideas) has attracted a Sears-Roebuck Foundation grant and will be a regular five-day-a-week children's feature on NET stations across the country this season. This Creative Person film shows the man behind "Mister Rogers'," the television personality. Rogers is visited at his home, is seen at the studio rehearsing his television program and observed working with study groups. He talks about his feelings towards his own two children and explains his intense desire to find a means of communicating with children honestly on their own terms. Creative Person: Fred Rogers was produced for National Educational Television by its Pittsburgh affiliate, WQED-TV. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
