Fred Rogers' Heroes: Who's Helping America's Children
(PBS, 8-9 p.m.): The people featured in this program are realistic, constructive in approach, and committed to the vulnerable people in our society.
If that makes them sound a lot like Mr. Rogers, it's because these heroes are being saluted by him, in a program about those who bring hope to others without making a big deal out of it.
Rogers visits people like Carola de la Rocha, a choreographer who teaches dance to kids in her South-Central Los Angeles neighborhood and never turns anyone away for lack of funds. She and three others get the spotlight they deserve in a show about helping hands in places where they are desperately needed.
