Excellent!! One of the most informative and interesting biographies I have seen. It answered some of the questions about Benjamin Franklin that other biographies did not. The actor who spoke as Benjamin Franklin not only looked remarkably like Mr. Franklin’s portraits, he was enjoyable. Well done PBS.

Solid documentary that explained the life of Benjamin Franklin. Very little acting out scenes in the documentary. Most of it was told from historian perspective but done very well.
