Presidential television

The History channel is running various president-related programs in the next 24 hours, including:

  • The White House: Behind Closed Doors
  • The Presidents (a series)
  • Modern Marvels: presidential transportation
  • Secret Access: Air Force 1
  • Civil War Journal
  • A Presidency Revealed (a series including JFK and FDR)
  • UFO Files (Cleveland was abducted by aliens)
  • Star Wars Tech (presumably about Reagan)
  • Batman Unmasked (Harding fought crime in a black cloak and cowl and became the inspiration for Batman; the “playboy president” persona was a ruse).

UPDATE: At 8 AM and 2 PM on Thu, they’re also rerunning their excellent doco on Fort Knox. The history and architecture of the bullion depository is really fascinating.
