Summary: At last, the federal convention has begun! Eleven days late, in the middle of a downpour, a quorum of 29 delegates from seven states are finally getting down to business in Philadelphia... This is the Constitutional Convention of 1787, and Emmy award-winning journalist Bill Moyers is reporting the story. Filmed at Independence Hall and filled with historical images and passages from the diaries, letters, and records of the Framers themselves, this two-part set is an indispensable tool for teaching the Constitution. All 60 clips (2:35 each) - culled from the classic Moyers: Report from Philadelphia PBS television series expressly for use in an educational setting - chronologically present the events and issues that shaped the convention, enabling viewers to follow the action as it unfolded day by day.
