But when it comes to the “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” 14 hours seems barely enough. The series begins with the birth of Theodore Roosevelt in 1858, continues through the life of Franklin Roosevelt, and ends with the death of Eleanor Roosevelt in 1962. It’s an amazing history of an amazing family. The documentary series debuts Sunday at 7 p.m. on KUED-Ch. 7 and continues for the following six nights, also at 7 p.m. The ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The HMS Erebus and HMS Terror were last seen in the 1840s. Canada announced in 2008 that it would search for the ships led by British Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin. Harper, speaking in Ottawa, said it remains unclear which ship has been found, but images show there’s enough information to confirm it’s one of the pair.

Franklin D. Roosevelt had all the qualities that these days detractors find wanting in their president: He was gregarious and optimistic, engaged and cheerful, folksy when he wanted to be and ferociously determined when he had to be.
