Ken Burns chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. The Roosevelts An Intimate History seven-part, 14 hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodores birth in 1858 to Eleanors death in 1962.

Review

...[Ken Burns s] most ambitious and deeply moving documentary since The Civil War. --The New York Times

...a stunning reminder of why Ken Burns, having revolutionized the documentary series, continues to be the best in the business. --Los Angeles Times

Masterful study of an American dynasty. --USA Today

4 out of 4 stars
"Burns is not engaged here in hagiography he fully addresses various maladies afflicting the trio, such as depression but their triumphs over illness, missteps, and self-doubts only end up making their achievements all the more towering...Highly recommended." --Video Librarian

Masterful study of an American dynasty. --USA Today
