Obama's story

On the plane to Hong Kong last week I watched a BBC documentary, Obama: His Story . Having read Dreams from my father, it was fascinating to see pictures and video clips of his earlier life. There was a great TV news clip of Obama leading a student protest at Harvard Law School, interviews with his high school teachers and his Kenyan relatives, fellow community organisers in Chicago, and a home video of him playing basketball for his high school. It was also very moving when Obama was interviewed about the influence of his mother, father, and grandparents.
