FRONTLINE: McCain McCain is an exploration of Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.)'s complicated relationship with President Trump and the Republican Party, as well as his life and politics.
Drawing on both new interviews and FRONTLINE's deep archive of reporting, McCain traces the conservative standard-bearer's motivations and his political history - from his experience as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, to speaking out against torture during the Bush administration, to his dramatic vote against the GOP's health care bill last year. The film also examines how, with his 2008 nomination of Sarah Palin as running mate, McCain himself contributed to a growing challenge to the party establishment.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
