Out of the vault

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Lady Bird John­son’s home movies, video clips of Karl Rove at 21, private asides from Ron­ald Rea­gan, TV out­takes from Harry Tru­man — th­ese and more than 1,000 other private record­ings, rare footage and more will be soon re­vealed by C-SPAN.

The net­work will parse the ne­ver­be­fore or rarely seen ma­te­ri­als dur­ing “Pres­i­den­tial Li­braries,” a new 12-week se­ries. The curious are in luck: All the sounds and images also will be avail­able on­line (www.cspan.org/pres­i­den­tial­li­braries).

“We be­lieve we can bring some new perspectives to th­ese 12 men and some his­tor­i­cal con­text to the highly com­pet­i­tive 2008 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion,” said C-SPAN Pres­i­dent Susan Swain. The se­ries be­gins Sept. 7 at 8 p.m.
