Episode Summary

Nixon: A Presidency Revealed
Richard Nixon described his career as a journey to the mountaintop and to the despair of life's deepest valley. The triumphs of his presidency were overshadowed by a scandal that forced his resignation. Using hours of recorded conversations and the recollections of those who worked closest to Richard Nixon, our story will expose the driven but flawed man who became this nation's 37th president. Included are in-depth interviews with experts and members of the Nixon staff including Alexander Haig, Henry Kissinger, and John Dean, historians Jonathan Aitken, Robert Dallek, and Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee. The momentous events of Nixon's career will be covered starting with his vice presidency, his political resurrection a decade later and his struggle to end the Vietnam War. Finally we will trace Nixon's reemergence as an elder statesman.moreless
