Summary
The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights represent much more than the words used by America's Founding Fathers to define a fragile, nascent country. They're the living, breathing realization of America's democratic ideal, the bedrock of a society that its people have built over nearly two-and-a-half centuries, and they provide a blueprint that is, was and will be a template for democracy around the world. To celebrate these iconic documents on our nation's birthday, HBO presents a 45-minute special, directed by Alexandra Pelosi and narrated by David McCullough (<em>John Adams</em>), in which dozens of Americans - from actors and media personalities, to politicians, lawmakers and presidents, to schoolchildren whose future is being shaped by our shared past - read the three founding documents that define our outlook on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. ©2019 Home Box Office, Inc.
