A+E’s History will pay tribute to the life and legacy of the late American president George H.W. Bush in an upcoming documentary special.

Produced internally at the network, History Remembers George H.W. Bush (1 x 30 minutes) will feature archival footage, interviews, and speeches to explore the various life stages of the Second World War veteran, his private life and his tenure as the 41st president of the U.S.

The special also features new interviews with Bush’s former chief of staff Jean Becker and presidential historian Doug Wead, who also served as special assistant to Bush at the White House, among others.

Bush, a Republican, served as president of the U.S. between January 1989 and January 1993. He lost his second term to Democrat presidential candidate Bill Clinton. Prior to his presidency, he served as vice president between 1981 to 1989 under then-president Ronald Reagan.
