Abstract:

The central irony of FDR's presidency was that a man of privilege came to be identified with measures that made him a hero to a vast and varied coalition of ordinary Americans, and a villain to members of his own social class. This video explores this paradox, moving inside the Oval Office to show FDR's response to the massive problems posed by the Great Depression, and then out to the heartland to document how his programs and his personal style - ebullient, risk-taking and surprisingly cunning - restored hope to Americans who had lost hope.
