The Speech That Defined a Presidency
Pat Sajak interviews Peter Robinson on writing the “Tear down this wall” speech
Thirty years after Ronald Reagan’s famous denouncement of the Berlin Wall, Peter Robinson reflects on writing the Brandenburg Gate speech and why it was so important to include the now memorable words, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Pat Sajak, host of Wheel of Fortune, turns the tables on Uncommon Knowledge’s host, Peter Robinson, sitting him down in the interview chair to discuss that famous speech and his journey to becoming Ronald Reagan’s speechwriter.
Stanford Video produced this three-camera shoot on location at the Reagan library in Simi Valley, California.
