I can see your problem. At least there is a good chance the Roosevelt series will be rerun. Or maybe it may be available as an On-Demand feature from your cable company. Or maybe your might stumble across the DVD set really cheap.
Either way, it really is well done and very informative - and not really a spin job. It even deals with his New Deal "mistakes" and his attempt to "pack" the Court, (but without partisan fervor). I hope you get to catch it. Your participation in these forums tells me it might be something you would enjoy.
