February Programming Highlights Just For You

The Queen Mother (Parts 1 & 2), Sunday, February 3 at 9PM - This moving profile reveals the dramatic inside story of the Queen Mother’s tumultuous life, from royal power struggles to the darkness of World War Two. With testimonies from royal experts and insiders, as well as extensive archive materials, The Queen Mother forensically examines the life of a woman with a will of iron, determined to protect the British monarchy.

Won't You Be My Neighbor?, Saturday, February 9 at 7PM - For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion.

In this feature documentary, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom) looks back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, focusing on his radically kind ideas. While the nation changed around him, Fred Rogers stood firm in his beliefs about the importance of protecting childhood.

SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE, Lafayette and Cajun Country, LA, Friday, February 15 at 8PM - In this episode, Samantha is in Louisiana! She is instantly engulfed in Cajun and Zydeco music at the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. The journey continues with a visit to Tabasco to learn the 5-year process of bottling the hot sauce, followed by a kayak tour through the local swamps.

B.B. King: AMERICAN MASTERS, Tuesday, February 19 at 10PM - B.B. King, born Riley B. King, was one of the most influential and celebrated blues musicians of all time. From his roots as a sharecropper’s son, working in the cotton fields of Mississippi, he rose to become a living legend. The film explores King’s life and career through candid interviews with the man himself, his family, longtime friends, and fellow music contemporaries such as Bono, George Benson, Eric Clapton, Aaron Neville, John Mayer, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, Ringo Starr, Johnny Winter, and more.

Have a great time expressing yourself creatively this month!  Take care, Nancy Tooraen, ntooraen@lpb.org
