This inspiring story features interviews with Condoleezza Rice, President George H.W. Bush, President Jimmy Carter, Ara Parseghian and others, talking about the role Father Ted has played in their lives. “God, Country, Notre Dame” will be broadcast on television and is available for purchase on DVD with additional footage and interviews.
