Taking the Hill

"Taking the Hill: Inside Congress," the groundbreaking Dateline documentary that explores a day in the life of the U.S. Congress, is now available in NBC Learn K-12 and NBC Learn Higher Ed.

Seven American Presidents over the course of 40 years have granted NBC News exclusive access to produce the television tradition, “Inside the White House.” Now, for the first time in history, our cameras have documented a day behind the scenes on Capitol Hill.

Congress 1

In “Taking the Hill: Inside Congress” Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor of “NBC Nightly News,” leads viewers through an unprecedented look at life under the dome of the U.S. Capitol. 

As negotiations over our nation’s debt stuttered, stalled, and started up again, NBC’s cameras and crews spread throughout the Capitol complex to capture a first-hand, up-close view of a legislative day unfolding. Our lenses followed the relationships and conversations behind the headlines as Williams interviewed key lawmakers -- House and Senate leaders from both parties -- and the staffers out of the spotlight who keep this institution running.

Congress 3

“Taking the Hill: Inside Congress” is now available in NBC Learn K-12 and NBC Learn Higher Ed, the subscription resources from NBC Learn, available to schools and universities for teaching and research.
