I want to find out where I can locate (either on DVD, or online) a documentary of John Quincy Adams. Something of PBS or History Channel quality too if possible.

Not a documentary, but the movie released this year, John Adams
http://www.amazon.com/John-Adams-Miniseries-Paul-Giamatti/dp/B000WGWQG8
was fantastic. It is based on a biography.

3 DVD set.

thanks, although I was looking for John Quincy Adams – his son :)

—oops you beat me to the punch. I was just going to point at that the movie is obviously centered on John Adams…..but you will at least get some info on John QUINCY Adams, his son. He is portrayed throughout the movie and you will learn how he got his start in politics….His initial travels overseas on behalf of his father, etc.

Worth a watch to get info on his son.

Let me know if you do find a good one. I am very interested in JQA being in the running for the Anti-Masonic party.
