7-BLU-RAY SET, THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
The Roosevelts: An Intimate History chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative.

This 7-part, 14-hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world.

The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear.

Bonus Material | Special Features: Making of The Roosevelts ,13 bonus videos, deleted scenes with an introduction by Ken Burns, English subtitles. Running Time: Approx. 840 minutes on 7 discs

BOOK, THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
An extraordinarily vivid and personal portrait of America's greatest political family and its enormous impact on our nation -- the tie-in volume to the PBS documentary to air in the fall of 2014.
This handsome, engaging, revelatory book is an intimate history of three extraordinary individuals from the same extraordinary family -- Theodore, Eleanor, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Geoffrey C. Ward, distilling more than thirty years of thinking and writing about the Roosevelts, and the acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns help us understand for the first time that, despite the fierce partisanship of their eras and ours, the Roosevelts were far more united than divided.

All the history the Roosevelts made is here, but this is primarily a book about human beings, each of whom somehow overcame obstacles that would have undone less forceful personalities, and all of whom wrestled in their lives with issues still familiar to the rest of us -- anger and the need for forgiveness, courage and cowardice, confidence and self-doubt, loyalty to family and the need to be oneself. This is the story of the Roosevelts -- no other American family ever touched so many lives. Hardcover, 528 pages
