Skip to comments.American Idol: Ronald Reagan (BBC Documentary)
Posted on 03/13/2013 11:04:32 AM PDT by Ennis85
"A documentary about the 40th President of the United States, taking a closer look at his life from a lifeguard to a radio announcer to an actor, all the way up to becoming a Union leader and Politician. It reveals his transition from a Democrat to a strict new liberal republican, and it unearths problems of his presidency such as the Iran Contra scandal."
It involves interviews from people such as his sons Ron and Michael Reagan, his advisor Stuart Spencer, his speechwriter Peter Robinson, biographer Edmund Morris, author Mark HertsGaard, journalist Frances Fitzgerald, author Thomas Frank, author Thomas W. Evans
Just as a heads up there are left wing points of views throughout this documentary such as National Security Archives' Peter Kornbluh.
I just thought I'd see what people here thoughts are on this documentary, whether or not you think this is a fair assessment of Reagan's legacy?
Oh goody! Another BBC docoumentary to give a pass.
I cannot imagine the BBC giving RWR a fair hearing. Will not be watching this when it becomes available.
Did you really expect something ‘fair and balanced’ from the BBC?
