Ratified in 1789, the United States Constitution stands today as one of the most important documents in the history of the country. It created orderly systems of government, the office of President, Congress, and the extremely efficient system of checks and balances that underlie America's governmental system. This program examines the history behind the Constitution by combining live action and documentary photography with the insights of many American political science experts. Its fast-paced style makes learning about the document that remains the law of the land exciting and fun.
