November 5, New York, NY - Moments after the President of the United States is sworn into office he gains access to "The Nuclear Football," a briefcase that contains the most volatile top-secret information in the world - America's nuclear launch codes. The Football is a high profile national secret, but it's only one of many pieces in the classified arsenal at the President's disposal once he assumes the role of Commander in Chief.

THE PRESIDENT'S BOOK OF SECRETS takes viewers on a journey inside White House history to unveil staggering information about secrets known only to the President, from top-secret intelligence and classified events to covert codes and future technologies. The two-hour special premieres Wednesday, December 1 at 9 p.m. ET on HISTORY(R).

Presidential secrets investigated in THE PRESIDENT'S BOOK OF SECRETS include:

What secrets does an outgoing President share with the President-elect during their first private meeting?

When does the incoming President gain access to vital national secrets and receive the codes to the nuclear arsenal?

Is there a "Keeper of the Secrets" who tells the President everything?

What information is so highly classified that even the President's security clearance is not enough to gain access?

THE PRESIDENT'S BOOK OF SECRETS features exclusive interviews with Washington insiders, including former CIA Director Michael Hayden, former Director of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, former Vice President Dan Quayle, former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino and Presidential daughter Susan Ford who reveal what it is like to live and work in the White House. Additionally, Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, journalists Dan Rather and Jonathan Alter and other experts share what they know about the secret world of the Presidency.
