WATCH Ron Reagan Speaks Out

As the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan approaches, "This Week with Christiane Amanpour" takes a special look at his legacy.

In an exclusive interview, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich joins Christiane Amanpour to discuss the Reagan revolution and how it influenced a generation of conservatives. Which leading Republicans now can claim the Reagan mantle? What lessons could today's politicians learn from the Gipper? And, for his record on deficit spending and his willingness to work with Democrats, would Ronald Reagan, himself, be welcome in today's Republican Party?

Then, Ronald Reagan's three surviving children join Amanpour in another "This Week" exclusive. Ron Reagan, Michael Reagan and Patti Davis assess their father's legacy and his lasting impact on politics, American culture and the world. What do they think about present-day conservatives who claim to be real Reagan Republicans? And they discuss new revelations about their father's presidency and his battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Plus, a powerhouse roundtable with four top voices who worked in and covered the Reagan White House -- George Will, Cokie Roberts, Sam Donaldson and former Reagan budget director David Stockman debate Reagan's lasting influence on the conservative movement. How does the Tea Party movement measure up to Reagan's legacy?
