Biographical Documentary: Robin Williams Remembered: A Pioneers of Television Special

This is a posthumous look back at the life of Robin Williams.  It is very good because it uses numerous interviews with Robin Williams himself.  Somehow the interviews had already been done before his death which lead to a very good story.  It follows through his childhood but presents that he was a master of several different genres.  This included stand-up comedy, television, movies, including dramatic and comedic roles, as well as the villain.  He was also a star in animation with the Genie in Aladdin.  He was also a humanitarian, and visited the troops in Afghanistan more than anyone.
He left us too early.  A quote form the end of the documentary reflects this, "A beautiful soul who traveled at the speed of light."
