The Empire of Reason( Visual )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Docudrama recreating the ratification debates on the U.S. Constitution as if they were being covered by today's television news, highlighting the New York convention in July, 1788. "The premise of the show is simple. What if television had existed in 1788? How would it have covered New York State's debate about whether or not to ratify the U.S. Constitution? With historical figures wearing modern dress and using familiar language, the film allows today's audience to understand firsthand the forces that shaped this country two hundred years ago. The argument, characters, passions and debating points are historically accurate, but the language and the medium of the debate is modern in form. Present day newscasters and commentators play themselves, reporting on the events of the 1780s as though they were occurring now. Each segment of the program is in a format familiar to today's audience -- Walter Cronkite anchoring the nightly news, Al Roker giving the weather report, Forrest Sawyer reporting from the field, William F. Buckley querying his guests, plus a smattering of commercials, etc."--Website
