From draft dodging to the Dayton Accords, from Monica Lewinsky to a balanced budget, the presidency of William Jefferson Clinton veered between sordid scandal and grand achievement. In Clinton, the latest instalment in the critically acclaimed and successful series of presidential biographies, this film explores the private peccadilloes and the public battles of one of the most fascinating, contradictory, and larger-than-life figures ever to occupy the White House.
Over four hours, this special will follow Bill Clinton’s extraordinary story from his childhood in Arkansas to his impeachment trial in the Senate of the United States. Through interviews with a wide range of intimates and enemies, as well as writers and historians working on the latest scholarship, we will see the Clinton presidency in a new light. Produced by Barak Goodman.
