Watergate

Dick Cavett’s Watergate

 

From 1972 to 1974, as the Watergate scandal unfolded, television host Dick Cavett was at the forefront of national TV coverage, interviewing nearly every major Watergate figure. In this unique opportunity to mark the 40th anniversary of a defining moment in American history, witness Watergate through the words of the people who lived it: from the botched burglary at the Democratic National Headquarters; to the must-see TV of the daily Congressional Watergate hearings; to the ongoing behind-the-scenes battle between the White House and The Dick Cavett Show, culminating with the resignation of President Nixon on August 9, 1974.
