Summary To mark the centenary of the birth of one of the most iconic figures in recent American politics, this documentary examines the enigmatic career of former screen star and two-term US president Ronald Reagan.Reagan has been heralded as one of the architects of the modern world and since his death many Americans have been working to cement his legacy, but some critics argue that the aftershocks of Reaganomics continue to crumble economies the world over and that the hubris of Reagan's foreign policy continues to propel America into a cycle of overseas ventures. To such critics Reagan is an ominous figure who did more harm than good.The program looks at who Ronald Reagan was, and how he came to shape world politics in the way he did. Featuring in-depth interviews with those who worked with him and knew him best, this film provides a definitive and penetrating look at Reaganism, whose grip on the public mind has been rekindled by recent events in Republican politics.
