This program explores the fascinating story of Thomas Jefferson's admiration for Voltaire and how the French philosopher, steadfast advocate of political and religious freedom, influenced not only Jefferson but many of the other founding fathers. Striking parallels are observed between life at Voltaire's rural retreat at Ferney near Geneva and Jefferson's estate at Monticello. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Cliff Robertson, this visually stunning video combines beautiful on-site footage and other images with authentic music of the period to accentuate the dialogue of ideas between these two great minds
