FDR: A Presidency Revealed

PBS documentary from the 1980s on Franklin Roosevelt, describing him as an “infinitely more complex man” than was known during his lifetime or in the life of his wife Eleanor, who died in 1962. Narrated by historian David McCullough.

From Youtube user AlSidre: FDR: A Presidency Revealed examines one of history’s most compelling figures. Inspired by his cousin Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt rose to the nation’s highest office during the depths of one of its darkest periods – and after being stricken with polio at the age of 39! A man of few words, he brought a desperate nation together through Fireside Chats and sweeping reforms like Social Security and the New Deal. Greater still, he lead America through the greatest war the world had ever known, and set international policy for a new global order. At the same time, his administration hid a dark underbelly teeming with covert actions, spy rings, and powerful enemies. FDR: A Presidency Revealed is the full unexpurgated story of one man’s remarkable presidency.
