THE SUPREME COURT | Episode 4 excerpt | PBS

Duration: 03:20
Program: The Supreme Court #104
Broadcast Date: Feb. 7, 2007

Episode 4: The Rehnquist Revolution investigates how the court has developed in more recent times, with a particular view to the development of the court under the leadership of Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist.

"I do think there's a special responsibility that comes with being the Chief to look out for the institutional stability, security and prerogatives of the Court," says Chief Justice John Roberts, Jr., "And I'd be surprised if Justice Rehnquist's view on a number of areas didn't change when he moved from an Associate Justice to being the Chief Justice."
