Martin D. Huberman (Project Director: August 2021 to present)
Here, The People Rule

Development of a two-hour film exploring the history of presidential transitions.

It is the morning of January 20, 2009, just hours before the historic inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States. At the White House, the Situation Room buzzes with activity. U.S. intelligence agencies are convinced that Somali terrorists have snuck into the country from Canada — and will explode bombs on the National Mall during the Inauguration. Unseen by the American public, Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice and the highest levels of the Bush and Obama administrations are working together to ensure that the plot is not successful — and that the presidency will survive if it is. Here, The People Rule, a two-hour film for PBS, will unfold around a number of broad themes, each involving several transitions. We will hear interesting and enlightening stories of notable transitions in history.
