Editorial Reviews

Celebrate America's 20th-century Chief Executives with "The Democrats," a fabulous compilation from the award-winning PBS series "The American Experience," featuring "FDR," "The Kennedys," and "LBJ." The double-disc "FDR" profiles Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the longest-serving President, who enacted the New Deal and steered the country through the Great Depression and World War II, changing American Politics in the process. "The Kennedys" focuses on one of America's most influential families (including President John F. Kennedy) and how the Kennedy dynasty evolved into the central political drama of the mid-20th century. "LBJ" is the definitive story of the "Man from Texas," President Lyndon B. Johnson, whose "take no prisoners" style of bare-knuckle politicking made him a controversial and compelling leader.

While there are many video documentaries available on the U.S. presidents, few are as insightful, objective and informative as this series from PBS. In fact, many teachers and professors have been known to use these films as an introductory basis for their students, and although they are long, about 12 hours combined, you will come away from the "experience" knowing much more about the presidents than you could ever have thought possible. In that vein I would suggest this series is the equivalent to reading a good 300-400 page biography of each leader separately. For anyone with an interest in U.S. history this series is a must own! Buy it today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate documentaries regarding these Gentlemen February 28, 2004
It is compelling and breathtaking to ride along the bumpy roads that were layed out for these Presidents through these AMERICAN EXPERIENCE DVD's. David McCullough and PBS are second to none.
LBJ's segment is my particular favorite. While men with FDR and JFK's personality could be elected today... the days of men like LBJ... for good or bad... are over. He was way too animated and crude for today's candidate... which makes for wonderful recollections and storytelling found in his DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic History, As Well As Entertainment! October 29, 2001

Wonderful package-anybody who has seen one of the various documentaries under the PBS "American Experience" banner does not have to be told how terrific they are. "The Republicans" set is equally good, and the transfers are stunning.
