Thomas Jefferson by Ken Burns | PBS America 03:12

Thomas Jefferson - premieres 10.15pm, Monday 13 & Tuesday 14 April on Sky 534 & Virgin Media 243 Broadcast over two evenings, this film by Ken Burns profiles the third president of the US, one of the country’s Founding Fathers and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence. Born in Virginia in 1743, Thomas Jefferson studied law before embarking upon a political career, serving in local legislature before becoming a member of the Continental Congress. After a brief period as Virginia State Governor, Jefferson served as US Minister to France before accepting an invitation from his friend President George Washington to become Secretary of State. After serving as Vice President under John Adams, he was elected to the presidency in 1800, an office which he occupied with distinction for two terms. His leadership saw the completion of the Louisiana Purchase, which effectively ended French colonial ambitions on the North American mainland, and the exploration and mapping of the then uncharted western part of the continent. Jefferson was a man of contradictions. Although a fierce advocate of the rights of the individual, he owned slaves throughout his life, having benefited from a sizeable inheritance from his father. He was the most articulate defender of liberty but his passion was tempered by the serenity of family life on his plantation at Monticello. His overall contribution to American life, however, can scarcely be overstated.
