THE FALL OF NEWT GINGRICH
Premier national broadcast on PBS: August 30, 2000. 90 minutes
In September 1998, Newt Gingrich was one of the most powerful men in America. During the next six months, he led his party through a disappointing election and the impeachment of the President of the United States. Then he resigned and became a private citizen, while the President he battled remained in office. Our cameras followed Newt Gingrich behind the scenes during these tumultuous months. Narrated by Tony-award winner Blair Brown.
This documentary benefits greatly from the unprecedented behind-the-scenes access. Political junkies won't want to miss this chapter of not-so-ancient history.
