This remarkable five-part series focuses on the political life of Pierre Elliott Trudeau and also sheds light on recent Canadian history and politics. From part one, where we see the young Trudeau first as a brillant student and later as a wickedly eloquent politician with humanist leanings, to the final episode, which reveals a serene, more restrained Trudeau, the man justly considered to be one of the greatest statesmen Canada has ever produced talks about his political life with admirable candour and passion in interviews notable for a sense of intimacy and openness.
