He negotiated an alliance with France, helped write the Declaration of Independence and was the first to tame lightning. Yet Benjamin Franklin, by his own admission, was far from perfect. History takes a fresh and informative look at the man behind the myth: a writer, scientist, politician, and ruthless competitor who never made a penny from his achievements and was more comfortable speaking in front of the British Parliament than with his own family. Narrated in a straightforward, conversational tone, Ben Franklin features in-depth interviews with renowned biographers and historians, as well as on-location reenactments shot in high-definition, for a truly remarkable walk in this founding father's footsteps.
