Subject: RE: BS: Anybody watching 'The Roosevelts' on PBS
I caught the Teddy episode.. fascinating! But the most interesting thing that was new to me was the revelation that Eleanor was not really good at being a mother. She gave birth to babies, then shrugged and let nannies do most of the raising.

I'll set my head to see all the series.

(I remember only FDR's death... I was 6, and my mother was crying.)
