30 years after he left the White House, Reagan continues to put his stamp on American politics. Barack Obama himself didn't hesitate to rekindle the "Reagan spirit".
However, no President in the history of the United States has ever tapped into as much passion as Reagan did. Worshipped by conservatives, hated or even despised by liberals, Reagan is undoubtedly one of the most controversial presidents in the history of the United States.
For some, he was the American hero who defeated 'the Evil Empire'; for others, he was an irresponsible warmonger who brought us on the verge of the worst conflict with the Soviet Union.
Today Americans take stock of his presidency, whether you are a liberal or a conservative there is something on which everyone agrees: Reagan's presidency is a turning point in the history of the Cold War, breaking with his predecessors at the White House.
In this documentary, we take a look at his timeline, peeling through the layers of his presidency, including peaks and fails.
