The Presidents DVD Review



Synopsis: The Presidents is an unprecedented eight-part survey of the personal lives and legacies of the remarkable men who have presided over the Oval Office. From George Washington to George W. Bush, The Presidents gathers together vivid snapshots of all 43 Commanders in Chief who have guided America throughout its history--their powerful personalities, weaknesses, and major achievements or historical insignificance. Based on the book To the Best of My Ability, edited by Pulitzer Prize-winner James McPherson, The Presidents features 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. Viewed within the changing contexts of each administration, the Presidency has never seemed more compelling and human. Narrated by Edward Herrmann (The Aviator).

Review: We learn a rather limited amount on the various Presidents of the United States in school.  In fact, we know very little indeed.  This DVD series is an 8-part examination that goes in-depth on some of our most interesting presidents.  Their personal lives..what made them tick..what happened in office.  I realized how little I actually knew.  Loved watching this one with the kids, we all learned SO much.  We highly recommend this one.
