Three years in the making and featuring more than one hundred interviews with leaders and grassroots activists, WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE captures the spirit of the ever-growing Religious Right and addresses the persistent questions the movement raises: How does a free society draw the line between church and state while preserving a place for religious conviction in public life? How do media images of the Religious Right differ from the reality? And finally, when politicians and religious activists join forces, who holds the reins?
The six-hour series includes interviews with Ralph Reed, Jerry Falwell, Billy James Hargis, James Robison, Bill McCartney, Pat Robertson, and many other religious leaders. From the political realm, interviews are offered by former Nixon advisor Charles Colson, former Carter advisors Stuart Eizenstat and Jody Powell, former Reagan advisor Michael Deaver, former Bush advisor Leigh Ann Metzger and former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, and many others.
Compelling archival footage, and other commentary by Phyllis Schlafly, Randall Terry, Morton Blackwell, Paul Weyrich, Cal Thomas, Ken Briggs, and Ed Dobson, among others, provide a first-person view of this important cultural, political, and religious movement.
The series was produced by Lumiere Productions (Calvin Skaggs, Executive Producer, David Van Taylor, Series Producer) and is presented on PBS stations by South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV) in association with the
Independent Television Service (ITVS)
