Part of the Ken Burns America Collection, this incisive documentary profiles our government's legislative branch. Narrated by David McCullough, the program uses historic footage and interviews with veteran political observers-including David Broder, Alistair Cooke, and Cokie Roberts-to detail the first 200 years of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Incorporating readings from diary entries, letters, and famous speeches, the film chronicles the careers of notable lawmakers and charts the evolution and development of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
