PROGRAM INFORMATION

More information

The Watergate scandal began with a break-in at the office of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate Hotel on June 17, 1971, and ended when President Gerald Ford granted Richard M. Nixon a pardon on September 8, 1974, one month after Nixon resigned from office in disgrace.
In 1977, three years after his resignation, Nixon agreed to a series of interviews with television personality David Frost. Nixon was confident that this exposure would launch him back into public life. Instead, they sealed his fate as a political pariah.
James Reston, Jr., was David Frost's Watergate advisor for the interviews, and THE CONVICTION OF RICHARD NIXON is his intimate, behind-the-scenes account of his involvement and explains how a British journalist of waning consequence drove the famously wily and formidable Richard Nixon to say, in an apparent personal epiphany, "I have impeached myself."
