James Baker on Public TV: Now 84, Baker was instrumental in getting three presidents elected, served in top posts for two of them, and was a central player in some of the most momentous events of the late 20th century. As White House chief-of-staff,Treasury Secretary and Secretary of State, he respectively facilitated the Reagan Revolution, negotiated the Tax Reform Act of 1986, and brought the Cold War in for a soft landing. Baker also put together the unprecedented coalition of nations that fought the first Gulf War, and he organized the Madrid Peace Conference that brought Arab nations and Israel to the table for the first time in modern history.Candid revelations from Baker and firsthand accounts from former Presidents Clinton, Carter, and Bush Sr.; former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Henry Kissinger; and journalists, authors and historians provide an eye-opening, behind-the-scenes story of power, persuasion and diplomacy at the highest levels. The film is written,directed and produced by Eric Stange with John Hesse as executive producer.
