A complex and complicated artist, Georges Remi created one of the most famous characters in the world, Tintin, for young readers. With exceptional access to the archives of Studios Hergé and Moulinsart, this program looks at Remi's life and the way he changed the art of comic strips.

Interesting documentary about Tintin and Hergé.

I should hunt this down; I don't know enough about Hergé, despite having read his comics since I was a wee lad.

It's about the genesis of Tintin. The evolution of Tintin stories. With some sidenotes about his life.
It pointed out things about Tintin stories I wasn't aware of. And reminded me about some things I was aware of. (I'm not mentioning either yet to give you a chance to see for yourself).
And just plain reminded me of Tintin comic books. And how I enjoyed them so very much as a child.
My US friend watched it on "Hoopla".
