Editorial Reviews

Thomas Jefferson is the most researched, most written about, most referenced, and most quoted of our Founding Fathers. And yet, somehow, he remains the most stubbornly inscrutable. His life is a seemingly impenetrable thicket of contradictions: he enshrined the words All Men are Created Equal, and yet was a lifelong slave-owner; he was simultaneously a man of the people and the personification of the Virginia aristocrat; he was a die-hard American revolutionary who was also a dedicated lover of European culture and art; he advocated ruthless fiscal responsibility as president, yet his own finances were mired in debt.

Embrace and celebrate the third president s complicated life and legacy in the two-hour HISTORY documentary, Jefferson, the story of a national icon who remains, in historian Joseph Ellis memorable phrase, a great American Sphinx.

I really enjoyed this documentary. I came away with a much deeper understanding of Jefferson, the man. He was not a perfect man, but was, perhaps, perfect for that time. The direction was excellent, and the narators and the actors who participated were exceptionally good.

As the lead in this I would like to thank the cast crew and director for doing an excellent documentary of a most complex man.

Format: DVD
This is just an abominable "documentary", it's more of a Republican (GOP) propaganda piece. It completely distorts the real history of Thomas Jefferson by picking and choosing very, very narrow pieces of history to focus on, especially slivers which try and justify George W. Bush's Iraq War. If you want a good comedy, then fine, watch it, but if you're looking to really learn about Jefferson (one of the most amazing people to ever have lived), then go pick up any biographical BOOK about him. This doesn't even mention how his democratic ideals were conceived from his childhood upbringing of living around the Indians; nor doesn't spend more than 30 seconds discussing Jefferson's most important accomplishment (in his OWN view) of creating the first public University (University of Virginia). instead it actually focuses mainly on his home-life and absurd claims such as how Jefferson would be supportive of our current neoliberal economic theories by being supportive of the "free market". The History Channel is just an awful place anyone should get any information. We need to stop watching TV and read more BOOKS!
