The third program on the U.S. Capitol focused on the north wing, the Senate side of the Capitol. It featured the old and current Senate chambers; the Old Supreme Court Chamber; the majority leader’s office suite; Senator Kennedy’s hideaway office space; the Vice President’s Ceremonial Office, where President Grant’s vice president, Henry Wilson, died in 1875; the Brumidi Corridors; the President’s Room; and various Senate office spaces. 

Videotaped portions of interviews with various senators were shown, and both midway and at the end of the program studio guests responded to viewer telephone calls. 

The history, art, and architecture of the U.S. Capitol from its opening in 1800 to the present were featured through taped segments on the various public and private spaces in the building, tours, and personal stories about the Capitol from members of Congress, historians and curators. Several areas rarely seen by the public, and which had never been shown on television, were highlighted throughout the three-part program. close
