Narrated by Academy Award nominated actor David Strathairn, Great Decisions in Foreign Policy is produced by the non-partisan Foreign Policy Association and features eight half-hour documentaries, each tackling a different global challenge facing America today. The 2017 series features nearly 100 of the most important figures in international affairs along with introductory remarks from every living U.S. Secretary of State. Great Decisions airs on more than 250 PBS stations nationwide, and was viewed by more than one million people in 2012, according to Nielson.
“Great Decisions series takes you beyond today’s headlines by providing a look at significant challenges facing the world.”
“I think Great Decisions’ format makes it far more effective than other documentary series.”
—Ted Kircher, Great Decisions participant, Honey Brook, PA
“The Great Decisions DVD is a worthwhile companion to the booklet as it expands upon the topic, bringing new views to the debate. The DVD interviews and background information are also a great jump starter for group conversation. It is hard to watch the video and not have something immediately to say.”
—Patrick Frost, Great Decisions Discussion Leader, San Diego, CA
