The Clinton Years
First broadcast July 2007

The White House

From displays of political brilliance to the darkest days of personal turmoil, Bill Clinton's presidency was as controversial as it was colourful.

This four-part series explores his turbulent time in office, looking back over key domestic and foreign policy decisions and analysing his contribution to modern international politics.

Part Two: The Comeback

 Listen to the programme

From authorising emergency bailout during the Mexican economic collapse to balancing the budget, Clinton's strategic use of the Presidential veto would enable his White House to start working again.

The tragedy of the Oklahoma City bombing in May 1995 gave President Clinton a forum from which to lead his nation.
