The landmark documentaries The Making of the President: The 1960s debut on home video from Athena on July 5, 2011. The winner of four Emmy® awards, including best documentary and television program of the year, and broadcast in the 1960s on ABC, CBS, and A&E, the three documentaries collected here forever changed the landscape of political journalism by offering a full and in-depth look at the tumultuous presidential campaigns of 1960, 1964, and 1968. The programs are based on the bestselling books by Theodore H. White. His book on the 1960 campaign won the Pulitzer Prize. Produced by the Emmy®-winning and Oscar®-nominated David L. Wolper (Roots, North and South, The Race for Space, LA Confidential), these narratives offer a unique snapshot of an era steeped in political protest and progress. The DVD 3-volume boxed set also includes two rarely seen bonus programs, a 1964 tribute to John F. Kennedy and an intimate look at Lyndon B. Johnson ($59.99, www.AcornOnline.com).
