The White House: Behind Closed Doors DVD
The White House has been home to America’s presidents and their families for more than 200 years. It is the most photographed and toured residence in the country, but private areas in the White House are normally off limits to television cameras. Now, almost half a century since Jackie Kennedy took viewers on a personal tour of the home, HISTORY™ goes behind the velvet ropes at America’s most famous address for a long overdue look inside.
Accompanying George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush on the tour will be America’s foremost antique experts, Leigh and Leslie Keno, of “Antiques Roadshow” fame. Learn who installed running water, who commissioned the construction of the famous balcony off the third floor’s private quarters and what happened to the White House swimming pool, as The White House: Behind Closed Doors reveals the secrets of America’s most recognizable residence.
