The White House: Inside Story invites you to take an intimate behind-the-scenes historical visit to the nation’s homestead told through the first-person stories of First Family members, former employees, historians, members of the press, and a rare informal interview with President Obama inside the Oval Office.

New interviews with former President Jimmy Carter, First Ladies Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Barbara Bush, and Rosalynn Carter, describe their families’ place in the 200-year history of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. These personal stories are interwoven with historical facts about the “house that George Washington built.” First Lady Obama describes the White House as “a fabulously magical place to live, that’s not difficult to make a home.” Former First Lady Carter says that thinking about the history of the White House “gives [her] chills.” And former First Lady Bush recalls, “You can feel history, and hope you can live up to it.”

The tour starts tonight at 9pm on WGBH 2.
