Description by OLDIES.com:

Three landmark documentaries trace the path to presidential power, from preprimary jockeying to backroom deals, convention-floor drama, campaign strategy, and the final vote tally. Spanning the tumultuous 1960s, they spotlight three historic races: Kennedy-Nixon, Johnson-Goldwater, and Humphrey-Nixon-Wallace.

Product Description:

Belletrist and social observer Theodore H. White made an indelible impact on history in 1960, with his tome THE MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT. The recipient of a Pulitzer Price, the book offered the public a new level of insight into the U.S. political machine that instantly caught on, and set the standard for years to follow. Producer David L. Wolper then adapted White's work into a series of televised documentary specials, each one chronicling an election. This box set includes three of those specials: one from 1960 (on the Kennedy-Nixon race), another from 1964 (on the Johnson-Goldwater race), and a third from 1968 (on the Humphrey-Nixon-Wallace race). Each of the specials observes intimate moments between the candidates and their staff members, captures the tension of the races, and much more, meanwhile shedding a light on the inner mechanisms.
