A powerful look at the 44th POTUS’ life and political legacy

Can you believe it’s been a whole year already? Today marks 12 turbulent months since the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States, and More4 is marking the occasion with this new documentary on Trump’s predecessor.

Reporter Matt Frei has followed Barack Obama’s rise from charismatic junior State Senator (he recalls watching as ‘the crowd swarmed around him like a rock star’ on the campaign trail) to the first African-American leader of the free world, and he presents this moving, absorbing look at Obama’s life and work.

To compare and contrast, there’s a repeat afterwards of C4’s Meet the Trumps: From Immigrant to President.
