For election junkies, the undecided or those who like to be informed, there’s plenty on TV this week, including in-depth biographic documentaries about both presidential candidates.
The vice-presidential debate between hard-core conservative Paul Ryan and veteran Democrat Joe Biden is at 8 p.m. Thursday on major networks.
And, PBS — yes, the network for which Romney said he would cut funding — has profiles of both candidates on its “Frontline” series at 9 p.m. Tuesday on WTTW (Channel 11 on Peru Comcast).
PBS wrote the following about the Frontline program, "The Choice."
"Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have crafted their campaign narratives, telling you who they are, what they've done, and how they would leadAmerica.
"But there’s more to their stories.
"On October 9, 2012, acclaimed FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk (Money, Power and Wall Street, Top Secret America) presents The Choice 2012. This two-hour long documentary journeys into the places, people, and decisive moments that made the men who are competing for the presidency. Hundreds of hours of research and dozens of original interviews reveal new details and fresh insights about the two candidates — and our choice this November."
