A good followup to part one., 2 October 2011
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is the second part of the two-part biography on Franklin Roosevelt that aired on "The American Experience" in 1994. Like the previous episode, it was narrated by writer/historian David McCullough. It also consisted of various interviews, film clips and photos. Together, with some appropriate music, it made for a lovely biography--first-class all the way.

Part Two picks up as Roosevelt is assuming the presidency and runs through most of the Depression and WWII--ending with his death just before V-E Day. For the most part, there are no major surprises other than learning that Roosevelt's own daughter had arranged for him to meet with his mistress (now THAT'S odd).

Overall, very good and a nice followup to part one. It was, oddly, not the least bit critical of the man--something that seems unusual for a presidential biography (plus, he did have a decent amount of criticism of some of his Depression-era policies). While not quite as inspirational and a bit slow, it is still very much worth seeing, as Roosevelt was a truly extraordinary man.
