Editorial Reviews

Seen on A&E and the History Channel

Relive the tumult and triumph of modern American history

Wars, assassinations, impeachments, and political scandal rocked America in the 20th century and still reverberate today. Join legendary newsman Mike Wallace as he examines the people, events, and issues that shaped our nation. Mining the rich archives of CBS News, this series shows history as it happened, reported by Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, Roger Mudd, and other giants of broadcast journalism. Interviews with Doris Kearns Goodwin, Michael Beschloss, Hugh Sidey, Richard Reeves, and a host of other experts--as well as with some of the principal players in these political dramas--provide a fresh, revealing perspective on the recent past.

The 10 episodes in this set examine Washington politics and presidential leadership from McCarthyism through the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Relive--and rethink--more than five fascinating decades.

Best known as a correspondent for the groundbreaking CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes, journalist Mike Wallace has won over 20 Emmys®, three Peabodys, and many other awards in his distinguished career spanning more than five decades.

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.

I chose this because I was familiar with the Mike Wallace Approach to the truth at all costs, regardless of what anyone thinks of him. I loved every minute of it and would recommend it to any thinking adult.

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.
