As part of its lineup of programming tied to the presidential election, KTWU/PBS presents encore broadcasts of American Experience biographies from the Peabody Award-winning collection The Presidents. The special series begins on Tuesday, August 9 and concludes Wednesday, August 17.

“These films offer a chance for Americans to explore the lives of the leaders who shaped our country and see how each dealt with many of the same issues we face today — war, poverty, healthcare, immigration, and education,” said Mark Samels, American ExperienceExecutive Producer. “Each was shaped by the times in which they governed, as well as by their personalities and character. As we choose our next leader, these films provide an invaluable look back at the qualities that make an effective president and shape a legacy.”

Also included will be other themed special presentations, all on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1.
