BOX 401-421 "The People and the Power Game," 1995-1996
"The People and the Power Game" was a documentary series made in conjunction with PBS’s Democracy Now project in the leadup to the 1996 presidential election. The documentary is divided into two segments, “The Unelected: The Lobbies and Media” and “The Elected: The Presidency and Congress.” The media portion of “The Unelected” segment focuses on print and network news and their coverage of politics in the 1990s with a focus on tabloid-style news and ratings, such as the Bill Clinton and Gennifer Flowers story. News anchors Peter Jennings and Dan Rather are profiled in this segment. The lobbyist portion of the “The Unelected” details the relationships business and special interest groups have with the Republican-led Congress. The tobacco industry, United Parcel Service (UPS), and the health-care industry are profiled. Moving to the politicians themselves in “The Elected” segment of the series, Smith first takes a look at the American presidency and how much power the institution holds. Smith interviews Al Gore, Leon Panetta, and George Stephanopoulos, to understand the difficulties the Clinton administration had in passing its agenda despite controlling both houses of Congress. Moving from the presidency, Smith finally looks at the Republican-led Congress elected in 1994, and profiles Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Other congressmen interviewed include Robert Dole, Richard Gephardt, and Tom Daschle. This series also produced two companion pieces for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer: "The Republican Freshman" and "Campaign Finance: Abuses and Reform." Material in this series includes production bibles, digital files, interview transcripts, research, and segment planning documents.
