How Ronald Reagan's presidency used TV

Hosted by

Ronald Reagan’s image was so carefully crafted for an eager American public that his administration had a film crew follow him around every day. They called it White House Television. The Reagan administration generated as much footage as the preceding five administrations combined. The material is part of a new documentary called “The Reagan Show.”
