    This review is from: 20th Century With Mike Wallace: Politics & Presidents (DVD)

    Mike Wallace is excellent in bringing a summary of political truth to light on 10 past presidents, their families, actions, and their policies. Outstanding, at a level for upper elementary to adult with continual live footage of the events presented, as seen on CBS when it happened. The episodes of the hindsight on huge political events were aired first on A&E and the History Channel and have their excellence of production level. This is outstanding, 5-star educational material. For those of us old enough to have lived through most of those presidents, it is worthy of 6-stars, the additional star for nostalgia. You will relive the moments, good and bad.

    This series should be on every school shelf, usable in any 20th Century US &/or World History class. This DVD set would augment any US Government textbook, and provide a visual learning experience for school students and those adults who just enjoy a life of continued mental stimulation. History & Politics buffs: right up your alley. See reports by Murrow, Cronkite, Mudd, and more. More fun than election night!
    SUBTITLES are available for all episodes. Bonus includes a viewer’s booklet with added information related to each episode, and text material on the discs about political people and their life after the highlighted events.

    Each episode is between 45 & 50 minutes, plenty of color (but some older film segments used are B&W), and quite family appropriate. My wife joined me in rating “20th Century Politics & Presidents” a TOP DVD set. Hooked after episode one, we did not want to stop watching.

    Episodes:
    1:EPIDEMIC OF FEAR-McCarthyism and 1950s Communism at home
    2:JFK: A NEW LOOK-Assassination, a short presidency, secrets kept from the public
    3:ASSASSINATION AND CHAOS: THE DEATH OF RFK AND THE ’68 DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION-MLK & RFK assassinations, and the Chicago Democratic Convention Riots
    4:PRESIDENTS IN CRISIS: JOHNSON QUITS AND NIXON RESIGNS-Why Johnson was forced to choose to exit, and the fall of Nixon through Watergate
    5:DIPLOMACY AND CONSPIRACY: PRESIDENT NIXON’S TRIP TO CHINA AND THE WATERGATE BURGLARY-Nixon’s height (China relations) to Nixon’s low (Watergate and Presidential resignation)
    6:RONALD REAGAN AND THE RISE OF THE RIGHT-The surprise political climb of an actor and the Conservative Right it generated
    7:THE IMPEACHMENT OF CLINTON-Affair rumors finally stick leading to impeachment and trial
    8:FIRST LADIES-The strongest-most influential, Eleanor Roosevelt & Hillary Clinton, and the differences of roles with those in-between
    9:UPSTAIRS AT THE WHITE HOUSE-Many private moments that no longer are private
    10:WASHINGTON SCANDALS: SEX, MONEY, POWER-Past media cover-up of improprieties and how modern politics has turned full circle, now revealing minute details

    TRUTH is always seen more honestly from a historical perspective, but perhaps never truer than with 20th CENTURY POLITICS & PRESIDENTS.

    Very well put together and extremely informative. I’m sure at one time I knew most of what was on the DVD, but a refresher is always helpful. I do wish it had gone beyond Clinton.
