NIGHTTIME IN MISTEROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD
Special: The sights, sounds, feelings and fantasies of nighttime are explored by Misterogers, the gentle man who caters to the "inner dramas" of children.
Fred Rogers is a Pied Piper of the 3-to-8 set. Writer, producer and host of the Peabody Award-winning "Misterogers' Neighborhood" (seen in more than 100 cities), he simply and imaginatively examines the child's everyday world. Rogers: "Our goal is to confront children with what bothers them...it is good to re-evoke their fears and teacher them to deal with them."
Tonight...what parents do when children go to bed; a discussion and song about feeling lonely; and Misterogers' own memories of night. Joining in are Misterogers' colorful menage of puppet and neighborhood friends. (60 min.)
