The Story of Mr. Rogers

Published On June 8, 2018 | By Carrie Buchanan | Carrie Buchanan

If you grew up in the 70’s/ 80’s you might have been impacted by this one man. Mr. Rogers. He had the show where he invited you to be his neighbour.  He was about kindness and compassion.  He made such a huge difference to the world.

It’s been 50 years since the world was introduced to “Mr. Rogers Neighborhood” on TV screens everywhere.  I remember the show well.  I loved it.  I still remember the song.

A new documentary gives us a closer look at the man who played the role all those years.

The movie “Won’t You Be My Neighbour?” features behind-the-scenes footage of the public T-V show and interviews with those who worked with him.
