It traces their lives from John Adams early years as a colonial Boston attorney to the rise in prominence of Brookes Adams in the fields of political and social philosophy. This mini looks into their triumphs and tragedies, exploring their genius and profound social conscience. Written by
The first television appearance of actor Michael O'Hare, probably best known for playing Commander (later Ambassador) Jeffery Sinclair on the SF TV show "Babylon 5". He also originated what became the Jack Nicholson role in the movie "A Few Good Men" when he starred in the original play on Broadway. See more »
I am old enough to have seen this when it was originally presented on PBS. I also grew up in the shadows of Boston where most the mini series takes place.
I am currently listening to the audio CDs of JOHN ADAMS by David McCullough read by Edward Hermann which got me to thinking about how wonderful THE ADAMS CHRONICLES was. I came on IMDb looking for the series on DVD or VHS or in some form that would allow me to revisit it. Disappointedly it would seem not to be available in any of those forms.
If anyone KNOWS of or about a version or if this series may be run again on PBS would you please let me know.
