A three-part series about Francis Scott Key who not only wrote our national anthem, but was also a constitutional lawyer and an ambitious political operative for Andrew Jackson. Key’s life story is told through remembrances from his closest associates, as played by a group of gifted actors. Part One of F.S. Key After the Song is titled “The Era of Good Feelings.” It starts a heartbeat after Jackson’s battle of New Orleans and is a primer on early slavery. Part Two is titled “Might Versus Right.” It centers on Key’s change in character and his involvement in the Jackson Administration and his transformation into a political operative. Part Three is titled “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.” It shows how Key goes head-to-head with abolitionists’ ideas -- and loses. Contact your local Public Television Station for air times.
