I just watched this excellent film on PBS. Others have commented on the artsy look of it. I think that is what helped me to enjoy it even more. The women who created this have done an excellent job presenting a lifetime of his work and condensing it so that we also get to REALLY know the man. Norman Lear was born three years before my father, and like him a terrific American ... a WWII vet, a man with a social conscience and part of the greatest generation and unlike my Dad, he's still with us and still contributing. My Dad would have loved this program. It's a fitting tribute to one of the great founding fathers of TV. I look forward to reading his biography. This is definitely a "you should watch it" program.
