Ultimate Guide to The Presidents: Sundays from July 16 at 19h20 CAT
In this eight-part series, HISTORY® offers viewers a fresh perspective on the evolution of presidential power and the men who have served their country, from George Washington to Barack Obama. In 1787, a unique system of government was created - a democracy with powers separated among three branches: legislative, judicial and executive. While the balance among them shifts from time to time, the evolution of change is most embodied in the executive office. One man at a time shapes the presidency, as the presidency shapes him.

The Crime & Investigation Channel on DStv 170 offers:
