It was the longest presidency in US history. The most significant of the 20th century. Our 2-part special explores the character of the man who stood at the epicenter of American politics for 12 of the nation's most turbulent years. Using rare home movies, secret White House recordings, oral histories, and a cousin's secret diary, we show how the 32nd president overcame disability to carry the nation out of the Depression, rallied a divided country to common purpose, and charted the course towards victory in WWII. We also reveal FDR's private side that he tried so hard to conceal, including intimate stories of a 24-year struggle with paralysis and an affair that destroyed his marriage. Part 1 covers significant events of his presidency from his first inauguration, historic first 100 days in office, the New Deal, Fireside Chats, the NRA, CCC, and WPA, his controversial Court-packing plan, isolationist platform for reelection in 1940, and relationship with Winston Churchill.moreless
