“Clinton,” the latest installment in the critically acclaimed and successful collection of presidential biographies by “American Experience,” explores the story of an American president who rose from a turbulent childhood in Arkansas to become one of the most successful politicians in modern American history and one of the most complex and conflicted characters ever to stride across the public stage. “Clinton” airs on AETN in two parts Monday, Feb. 20, at 8 p.m. and Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m.


At the conclusion of part two on Feb. 21 at 9 p.m., AETN will air the locally produced follow-up “The Clinton Years: An Arkansas Perspective.” Among those featured in “Clinton” and the AETN follow-up are Arkansas journalists Max Brantley, editor of the Arkansas Times, and Ernie Dumas, columnist for the Arkansas Times. Other panelists include: Hal Bass, professor of political science, Ouachita Baptist University; Randall Woods, distinguished professor, John A. Cooper Professor of History, University of Arkansas; and J. French Hill, chairman and CEO of Delta Trust and former senior economic policy adviser in the George H.W. Bush administration.
