Doco nets all liv­ing pres­i­den­tial chiefs of staff

of a new tele­vi­sion net­work doc­u­men­tary on pres­i­den­tial chiefs of staff have a per­fect par­tic­i­pa­tion record. All 19 liv­ing men who had that job have given in­ter­views for The Pres­i­dents’ Gate­keep­ers. The four-hour doc­u­men­tary is ex­pected to air in two parts later this year. Film­mak­ers Jules and Gedeon Naudet (pic­tured) say their well-re­garded pre­vi­ous doc­u­men­tary on the Septem­ber 11 ter­ror­ist at­tack in New York was a call­ing card that prob­a­bly helped them con­vince some former chiefs to par­tic­i­pate. Their long­est in­ter­view was with former Vice-Pres­i­dent Dick Cheney, who was Pres­i­dent Ger­ald Ford’s chief of staff in the 1970s. Cheney says a chief is more pow­er­ful than a vice-pres­i­dent.
