Theodore Roosevelt

Jason Robards narrates this two-part documentary which traces the career of American president Theodore Roosevelt.

The closest the USA has come to having a socialist president, Roosevelt became the youngest president ever when he came to power after McKinley's assassination.

A popular leader, he made a mistake on the eve of his re-election that would haunt him for the rest of his life.

Roosevelt shocked the nation by announcing that he would not stand for re-election after his second term, but went on to build the Panama Canal, became the first American to win the Nobel Peace Prize, and introduced wide-ranging social reform.

This is his story, presented by Jason Robards.
