First Ladies
First Ladies 4 x 60'
Across four themed episodes, this series delves into the stories of the extraordinary women who are the US’s First Ladies, examining how they have made their mark, both within the White House and beyond. The role of First Lady has evolved beyond recognition since Martha Washington became “Lady Washington” in 1789. Yet history has often failed to acknowledge the importance of the Commander in Chief’s “First Mate” and the nation’s “First Mom”. Combining archive, reconstruction and interview, each film visits points from over two centuries of American history, looking at what the role has demanded of its incumbents, the secret heartbreaks and scandals many have endured and the links between past First Ladies and those who have taken on the role in modern times.
