THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT

Narrated by presidential insider Hugh Sidey and based on The American President by Philip B. and Peter W. Kunhardt, these compelling programs profile 41 men who have served in the nation's highest office. The portraits are organized thematically. "Professional Politicians," for example, examines Van Buren, Buchanan, Lincoln, and LBJ while "Family Ties" looks at J.Q. Adams, Benjamin Harrison, FDR, and Kennedy. Drawn from an extensive collection of visuals (drawings, cartoons, photographs, archival motion pictures, news film, videotape), each 12- to 20-minute capsule incorporates anecdotes, stories, and quotes along with voice characterizations from prominent figures like George Will and Walter Cronkite. DVD special features include scene slection and Internet links. Grades 7 and up. Closed captioned. Color and black-and-white. Total time: approximately 10 hours. WNET/Kunhardt. ©2000.
