NatGeo TV Special Follows Hillary Clinton’s Work at State

January 3, 2010


This National Geographic Channel special looks like it’s going to be an incredibly personal, behind-the-scenes look at almost every aspect of Secretary Clinton’s day-to-day work at the State Department! I’m glad they are doing this because I think a lot of people are interested in being able to see more of the behind-the-scenes goings-on with respect to Secretary Clinton’s diplomatic work.

Still4Hill and I have been wondering for the past year why Secretary Clinton’s people haven’t taken advantage of the incredible, unprecedented interest in her day-to-day work at the State Dept. and provide more of this type of information for the public and well, it looks like they have been doing just that!:

The National Geographic Channel has been following Hillary Clinton’s every move for an upcoming special that shows her day-to-day duties as the U.S. Secretary of State.

“Inside the State Department,” premiering this spring, follows Secretary Clinton and her team as they represent United States interests around the world, including her first trip as secretary of state to the United Nations, and visits to such countries as Pakistan (watch video below), Afghanistan, Jerusalem and Africa.

“Our cameras were granted more access to the secretary and her team than any other camera crew ever has received, including press crews,” says executive producer Steve Hoggard, who filmed Clinton on her trips overseas. “We were literally flies on the wall, traveling from country to country, capturing conversations, witnessing interaction with head officials and experiencing moments behind closed doors.”

Nat Geo cameras are also trailing Clinton’s advisers as they plan her agenda, brief her on each mission and strategize in the State Department Operations Center, which is filled with IMAX-size video screens showing satellite feeds from hot spots around the globe – tracking ongoing violence, attacks on embassies and even Secretary Clinton’s motorcade under way in dangerous locales such as Pakistan, notes Hoggard.

Additionally, “Inside the State Department” details the intense security efforts to keep Clinton safe, insight from the state department press corps who travel with her on each trip, and a personal tour of the treasure vault where gifts given to the president, first lady and secretary of state are stored….

Apparently, beginning January 7, 2010, a website (not yet live) will be available that will provide more information regarding the special. It will eventually be at

    All it said was it would be starting in the spring and that the above website ( would be up and running possibly on Jan. 7th (it’s not now). I tried to do a search on the NatGeo website but it didn’t come up with anything regarding the show. Also, it’s not clear whether this is going to be a one-time episode or if it will be on every week. If they have been following her on almost every trip, that certainly gives them more material than an hour show.

    I love NatGeo channel, they have excellent specials. This should be excellent.

    Well that’s something to look forward to. Otherwise, 2010 looks about as rough a road as last year.

    Finally! I’m so sick of how she’s marginalized by mainstream media. She’s the Secretary of State and what do we read? “Hillary busy with wedding plans” or wise-ass commentary about pantsuits. It’s getting interesting as there seem to be more and more folks who are becoming aware that they were sucked in by a master cheerleader who wasn’t really ready to pilot the ship of state. ( I hope Hillary has the sense to resign before the boat goes all the way down! )

    Hmmmm, are you going to figure out how to be bigoted against the Shriners? They are in lots of parades. What about high school bands? Gonna accuse them of imposing on your lifestyle? Oh my, one of the largest parades around is the parade for George Washington in Alexandria, VA.
