Tom Hanks stars as Mr Rogers

On the Leap of Faith this week, our reporter Áine O’Neill reports on the Jewish tradition of the “New Year of the Trees”, celebrated recently in Dalgan Co.Meath as part of World Interfaith Harmony Week. The Rev Chris Kennedy of Dun Laoghaire Presbyterian Church reviews the life of Fred Rogers, a legendary American television presenter. He revolutionised television for children, and his life is celebrated in a new Tom Hanks film A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood. We also talk with Sheik Dr Umar al-Quadri and France 24 reporter James Creedon in France about the French teenager who has received death threats for her comments on the Islamic religion.
