Summary
Over the course of four evenings in 1960, the American voting public tuned in to history: for the first time, presidential debates were broadcast live on national television, marking the beginning of a new era in politics. This A&E Special brings the landmark Kennedy/Nixon debates to life for a new generation of viewers using extensive clips of the most memorable exchanges as well as commentary from journalists, scholars, and political insiders. The most startling aspect? Both then and now, the indelible physical contrast between the photogenic John F. Kennedy and his opponent, Richard M. Nixon. Did the television camera lift JFK to the presidency?
