This program recounts the demand for a bill of rights, voiced by Jefferson and Madison, and Madison’s struggle against an unwilling Congress to attach such amendments to the new Constitution. Through the eyes of these founders, engaged in the fight to secure our rights, the program looks at the Bill of Rights issues that confront the nation today—religion in the classroom, the death penalty, civil rights. How would the founders have viewed these issues? How well has the document adapted to contemporary American society? Does the Bill of Rights secure, as Madison hoped it would, “the blessings of liberty”?
