In the 1960s, writer Theodore H. White changed journalism forever by putting the campaign for the White House under a microscope. The first of his bestselling series on presidential elections, The Making of the President, 1960, earned a Pulitzer Prize andbecame a TV documentary that won four Emmys, including program of the year. This collection brings together three television adaptations of Whites influential books for a full, in-depth account of presidential politics during the tumultuous 1960, 1964,and 1968 elections.Produced by Oscar nominee David L. Wolper (Roots), these programs feature Whites insightful scripts and rare film footage that reveal the winners and losers in unguarded, behind-the-scenes moments. All the backroom deals, convention-floor drama, and campaign strategy come alive again in three historic races: Kennedy-Nixon, Johnson-Goldwater, and Humphrey-Nixon-Wallace. From preprimary jockeying to the final vote tally, these spellbinding narratives dissect the inner workingsof our democracy and trace the path to power.Journalist and author Theodore H. White served as China bureau chief for Time and as correspondent and editor for The New Republic, The Reporter, and Colliers. He won numerous writing awards, includinga Pulitzer Prize and two Emmys.
