Revisit the lives of six recent presidents -- John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush -- in films from our award-winning collection. Beginning August 8 on PBS American Experience.
From ending the Vietnam War and improving relations with China and the Soviet Union, and finally, his resignation in the face of impeachment, Richard Nixon was a tragically insecure man with a bold vision.
Jimmy Carter's story is one of the greatest dramas in American politics. In 1980, he was overwhelmingly voted out of office in a humiliating defeat. Over the subsequent two decades, he became one of the most admired statesmen and humanitarians in America and the world. "Jimmy Carter" traces his rapid ascent in politics, dramatic fall from grace and unexpected resurrection.
