I am grateful to the SPL for buying this DVD as I have been thinking about it ever since I first saw it years ago on TV. It fascinated me then, and upon re-watching it, I like it even more. I was disappointed that Eugene Allen, the Butler at the WH who inspired the Lee Daniels's movie "The Butler" was not mentioned in BS@tWH, but he just may have been the extra character who appeared during the Eisenhower Administration which was the ending of this story as Lillian Rogers Parks retired in 1961 as JFK came into office.

I found so many things that I want to know more about from this DVD. It is a grand item to have in our collection. I try to mention it to everyone to see it. :)

Well done and very informative! This is a simple, interesting series depicting the journey of the staff at the White house over the span of many years. Humourous, lighthearted, and entertaining.
