Summary This docudrama looks at the rise and fall of the man behind McCarthyism, a term now synonymous with political witch-hunts. Senator Joe McCarthy dominated 1950s US politics with his televised communist hunting and battles with key institutions like the Army and even the President himself. Mixing original footage with previously unseen archive imagery, and unique insights from leading observers, the program examines the political and cultural landscape that allowed McCarthy's meteoric rise to power.
