I've never heard of this documentary series about TRUMAN, but I'd likely find it of great interest...some of these latter day presidents who think they've had a tough year in office should take a look at just about any year of the Truman presidency...especially 1950-51...they might feel less put upon...Neil Brock said:The Joe Pyne Show - This was the first of the confrontational crackpot guest shows. Morton Downey Jr,, Wally George and the rest were all imitations. Pyne was classic and there is a company who actually somehow acquired a set of tapes of the show, although its doubtful they would ever release any of it.
The Alan Burke Show - Similar to Pyne, although Metromedia likely trashed the tapes long ago and I'm sure its gone. Only seen one 10-15 second clip ever turn up.
Decision: The Conflicts of Harry S. Truman - 26 episode series shot in the early 60s. I only have one episode and it seems like an interesting show about Truman's presidency and he contributed to the making of it.
I, of course would love to have access to all of the CBS "20th Century" series, regardless of subject matter...and "Air Power" in it's entirety...
I would like to have "Crusade in Europe" based on Eisenhower's ww2 memoirs...also a 26 part, 30 minute series...
For me, the quality documentaries I find are few and far between...usually on PBS...Discovery channel, A+E, TLC etc., all fell victim years ago to the great dumbing down...
