Episode 1: The Golden Girl

Summary

As Hillary Clinton launches her 2016 bid for the presidency, "The Golden Girl" tells the story of her first political transformation - from a young suburban Republican to the iconoclastic First Lady of Arkansas.

Review

Now and then in this excellent interview-profile of Hillary Clinton you get some small sense of the frustration deep in her bones. At one point she repeats through gritted teeth, “It never ended!”, referring to attacks during the 2016 presidential campaign on her use of a personal email account as Secretary of State (Colin Powell had done the same).

Again and again, as the programme takes us through her early career, we hear how she overcame prejudice and misconceptions. She is still a powerfully polarising figure – “one of the most admired and one of the most vilified women in American history,” says an aide. And her life makes for an extraordinary political story.
