This documentary begins by introducing the Constitution and why it was created. It then examines key Constitutional concepts -- separation of powers and individual rights -- by focusing on two landmark cases: Youngstown v. Sawyer, a challenge to President Truman's decision to put the steel mills under government control, and Gideon v. Wainwright, in which the Supreme Court establishes the right to be represented by an attorney.
Part one: Creating a constitution -- Part two: One man changes the Constitution : Gideon v. Wainwright -- Part three: Checks and balances : Youngstown v. Saywer.
