From the Os­car-win­ning di­rec­tor of 20 Feet from Star­dom, a pro­file of an Amer­i­can in­sti­tu­tion: Fred Rogers, the or­dained Pres­by­te­rian min­is­ter who was a stal­wart of US kids’ TV from the late 1960s to the end of the cen­tury. Af­fec­tion­ate, mov­ing and – to UK view­ers at least – in­ef­fa­bly strange, it of­fers an eye-open­ing por­trait of a dif­fer­ent time and place: not the least for its footage of an im­pas­sioned Rogers con­vinc­ing a hos­tile sen­a­tor of the value of child­cen­tred TV.
