Breathing new life into the traditional civics lesson, Peter Sagal, host of a popular quiz show on PBS, tours the country on his Harley to find out how the Constitution works in the 21st century. Sagal examines four areas: A More Perfect Union – explores the delicate balance between federal and state; It’s a Free Country – Examines the Bill of Rights and how current battles are still being waged about freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to privacy; Created Equal – Peter looks at the 14th amendment; Built to Last? – Peter examines the systems that have kept the Constitution healthy and the forces today that threaten to undermine the framers’ original vision.
