Full Story
Details as follows:

Revered as a manga genius, Osamu Tezuka was also a pioneer in the world of TV animation. Astro Boy, Tezuka's story of a robot with a human heart, became the first Japanese anime to broadcast in the US, where it achieved a huge following. That success triggered the birth of an entertainment industry and nurtured a generation of anime creators. But Tezuka was never satisfied; inspired by the smooth movement and lush music of Disney animation, he longed to go beyond it. This program looks at the triumphs and tribulations of an artist driven to new forms of expression.
