Based on James McPherson’s Pulitzer prize winning book, To the Best of My Ability, THE PRESIDENTS is the most comprehensive documentary series ever filmed about the presidency, chronicling all 44 Commanders in Chief — from George Washington to Barack Obama.
This definitive and comprehensive eight-part series, narrated by actor Edward Herrmann, shares the stories of the distinctive individuals who have guided America throughout its history—their powerful personalities, weaknesses, and major achievements. Featuring rare and unseen photographs and footage, unexpected insight and trivia from journalists, scholars, and politicians such as Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, Wesley Clark, Bob Dole, and former President Jimmy Carter, the Presidency has never seemed more compelling and human. As the 2012 election cycle gets into high gear, A+E Networks has beautifully repackaged this best-selling set, now 50% slimmer, and included a bonus DVD – the feature-length documentary “All the Presidents’ Wives”, as well as a tour of national historic sites and rare presidential artifacts. Viewed within the changing contexts of each administration, this four-DVD set offers unparalleled insight into the men who have presided over the Oval Office.
