It follows FDR from his very first run for political office as New York State Senator through his years in Washington as Assistant Secretary of the Navy, as he pursues one goal - the presidency.

  • "This program goes beyond romantic icons and famous speeches to offer a portrait of one of the most extraordinary personalities ever elected to the presidency. Perhaps the most important American leader of this century, Franklin Delano Roosevelt served as president longer than anyone before or since, and led America through the two greatest crises of this century, the Great Depression and World War II. Part one is based on Before the trumpet, by Geoffrey C. Ward. It covers Roosevelt's early years and early political successes. Part two is based on Geoffrey C. Ward's A first class temperament. It begins with Roosevelt's bout with polio at age 39 and ends with his election to the presidency. Also details Eleanor's rise in public life. Part three explores FDR's response to the Great Depression. Part four is based on No ordinary time : Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt : the home front in WWII, by Doris Kearns Goodwin. It portrays FDR's leadership of the American people in the face of war until his death."@en
