- Program Description
Jimmy Carter's story is one of the greatest dramas in American politics. Twenty years ago, he was overwhelmingly voted out of office in a humiliating defeat. Today, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Jimmy Carter is one of the most admired statesmen and humanitarians in America and the world. Episode 1: “Jimmy who?” Former Naval officer, peanut farmer, born-again Christian and one-term governor of Georgia, Jimmy Carter miraculously captures the White House in 1976. He finds governing in Washington even more difficult than getting there. Episode 2: Hostage Carter secures his place in history by brokering the first Middle East peace treaty. But he is caught in a maelstrom: an energy crisis, runaway inflation, hostages in Iran. Following his defeat by Ronald Reagan, Carter transforms himself from failed president to revered peacemaker and humanitarian.
