While the United Nations Secretary-General often attracts the media spotlight, history has rarely recorded the personal impressions of the world body’s top leader. In this four-part series, Secretary-General Kofi Annan and three of his predecessors—Kurt Waldheim, Javier Peréz de Cuéllar, and Boutros Boutros-Ghali—share their thoughts about serving in the often-unenviable post. Rarely seen archival images and footage supplement each interview. For students of international politics and history, these programs offer valuable insight into the decision-making process within the UN as well as the organization’s strengths and limitations. 4-part series, 27-31 minutes each.
