In May of 1965 President Lyndon Johnson requested that the Wolper organization follow him around for a week to record and document the life of a president for a full working week. It resulted in capturing seven days of crisis as the President had to decide on a profound change of course of the Vietnam conflict during the last week of July, 1965, committing the United States to major combat in Vietnam: Johnson's two July 21, 1965 meetings with Foreign Policy Advisors on Vietnam about the deployment of U.S. troops to Vietnam; his July 22, 1965 meeting on Vietnam with the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the Cabinet Room of the White House; his July 26, 1965 telephone conversation with Senator Richard Russell about possible action against surface-to-air missile sites in North Vietnam; possible Soviet, Chinese, and world reaction to bombing Hanoi; the deployment of group troops without calling up reserves; and Russell’s concerns about the South Vietnamese leadership; and his July 28, 1965 announcement that he had ordered U.S. military forces in Vietnam increased from 75,000 men to 125,000, with further forces to be ordered as needed. Sympathetic at times, critical at others, while maintaining its journalistic integrity, this television documentary provides a unique insight into the personal/public life struggle of a U.S. President generally, and that of Lyndon Johnson particularly (Black/White, 1965, 46 Minutes).
