This three-hour documentary series on the life of former Secretary of State George Shultz presents viewers with a rare close-up look at this remarkable man who served his country at the highest level during an unforgettable time. Each of the three programs offers a never-before-seen look at the inner workings of the Reagan White House. It captures the intrigue and in-fighting as advisors vie for the ear of the president over historic issues such as Arms for Hostages and the Star Wars space defense initiative.

Through the memories of George Shultz, other cabinet members, journalists and historians, viewers relive the gripping tensions of these times; the fear of war in the Middle East, the shock of the barracks bombing that killed 220 Marines in Lebanon, the fall of Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos and the presidency of Corazon Aquino and the delicate manipulations of summitry that helped determine the future of peace on the planet. For the first time these programs reveal Shultz’s dedicated efforts to protect his President and expose those in the White House who plotted the illegal Iran/Contra scheme. Throughout, George Shultz’s relentless determination combined with his use of national strength made him one of the most effective secretaries of state in the nation’s history. The series offers George Shultz’s remarkably vivid portraits of the major players on the national and world stage in the latter years of the twentieth century. But Shultz’s most remarkable and revealing portrait are of Ronald Reagan himself. This three-hour PBS series is full of high drama and living history.
