The Great Depression and the Great Society. World War II, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Vietnam War.Civil rights and civil defense.Here is America at war, at peace, and at the crossroads that determined the course of history.For leadership we turned to the sons of eastern aristocracy and the product of central Texas poverty.Recognized by the most famous initials in American history - FDR, JFK, and LBJ - they are the subjects of probing biographies that add new detail and dimension to their lives and times.Using rare archival footage and photographs, interviews with family members, friends, adversaries, and eyewitnesses, and excerpts from correspondence and diaries, these films explore how a nation and its leaders answered their eras unique challenges.

This two-disc set chronicles the life and political career of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Although he was born into a wealthy family, there was little about his youth to suggest that FDR would become the giant of history that he did. His entry into state politics and a significant meeting with a woman named Eleanor would change his life and the course of a nation.

[This is the first of a 2-disc set. For the second part of this documentary please rent FDR, Vol. 2 - Fear Itself (1921-1933)]
