The White House: Inside Story It is one of America's most iconic buildings -- a symbol of shared national history, and home to the most powerful person on Earth. Here in the White House, the President charts the course for the country, and the First Family lives in the spotlight. It's home, office, and museum… a bunker in times of war, a backdrop for command performances or state visits, and the heart of the American body politic. Its gleam and splendor are maintained by more than a hundred members of the residence staff and a bevy of curators. And its collection of antiques and artwork, dating back to the earliest presidencies, have turned this mansion into a showplace for American art and design.
In this two-hour special presentation, The White House: Inside Story takes viewers behind the scenes, to meet the people who keep this house running smoothly, maintaining the power of the Chief Executive and guarding the privacy of the First Family.
Its most familiar and least known spaces are uncovered, from the Oval Office to the residential dining room, from the hidden basement beneath the press room to the kitchens where chefs prepare for a state dinner.
We'll see how the building and its operations have evolved over the past 200 years, changing with the currents of history and the tastes and concerns of its occupants. Standing at the epicenter of global politics, in the heart of the nation's capital, the story of the White House is the story of America itself.

Good historical review
Review by Avid R. on 07/17/20 review stating Good historical review
More of us know something about the president and his family (soon to be her family) than we know about this house they live in. This shows us the behind the scenes and story of the beautiful residence,

Ive always been interested in the history of the White House. I learned a lot in this presentation, and especially liked that it included the private parts of the house that I didnt see when I toured the White House.

Review by The B. on 07/17/20 review stating The Awe Inspiring Peoples House
As someone who has worked in our nations capitol for over 20 years, this PBS special provided a new perspective to a place we have all seen; hearing from its world class inhabitants, events that have colored our view of the place and those who have helped make it run. This program gave us a unique historical view, highlighted by colorful personalities offering us lively commentary detailing over 300 years of history in the making.

This is a wonderful tour of the Peoples House. It was well done, and has a lot of interviews with the presidents and first ladies who have lived in the White House. This is a great way to see inside the White House if you cant go on a tour in person. This DVD will hold your attention. You wont be disappointed. Im so happy that I was be able buy this wonderful documentary, after seeing it air on PBS. Its a keeper.

White House Story more about the families than the building
Review by Andy on 07/17/20 review stating White House Story more about the families than the building
While the documentary was enjoyable, the description may lead purchasers to think that it is more about the actual history of the building itself rather than the people who inhabited the White House. I was hoping for a more detailed history of the story of the creation and architectural life of the building but was treated to two hours of the life of the residents who inhabited the building instead. If that is what you are looking for then this is your documentary. I was a bit disappointed.
