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 the 43 Commanders in Chief who have guided America throughout its history to 2008 — their powerful personalities, their weaknesses, and their 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, as well as unexpected insights and trivia from journalists, scholars, and politicians. Featured guests include 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.
