"The Choice 2012" - A Frontline Documentary
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have crafted their campaign narratives, telling you who they are, what they've done, and how they would lead America. But there’s more to their stories. Tonight acclaimed FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk presents “The Choice 2012.” This two-hour long documentary journeys into the places, people, and decisive moments that made the men who are competing for the presidency. Hundreds of hours of research and dozens of original interviews reveal new details and fresh insights about the two candidates — and our choice this November. Award-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Kirk has produced more than 200 national television programs. A former Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard University, Kirk was the senior producer of FRONTLINE from the series’ inception in 1983 until the fall of 1987, when he created his own production company, the Kirk Documentary Group. SDPB-TV airs “The Choice 2012” tonight at 8 pm, Central; 7 pm, Mountain.
