For more than a century, Helen Keller has been one of the best-known people in the world. And while schoolchildren may know the basics about the blind and deaf girl from Alabama, a new documentary delves deeper.

“Becoming Helen Keller” premieres Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. on Alabama Public Television and Public Broadcasting Service stations nationwide as part of the “American Masters” series. The 90-minute presentation “rediscovers the complex life and legacy of the human rights pioneer,” said Mike McKenzie, APT director of programming and public information .

“Many people have been to Ivy Green and seen the water pump made famous in books and film,” McKenzie said. “But there is so much else to learn from Helen Keller – lessons important to all of us today – and ‘American Masters’ brings these to light in a new way with ‘Becoming Helen Keller.’”
