Dick Cavett's Watergate Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Tue, Aug 26, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

It was a slow-moving devastating crisis that changed America forever. Forty years ago -- as a result of the complicated, but dramatic, tale of a criminal conspiracy to cover up misdeeds by President Nixon and his top advisers -- there was a sense that the government was in danger of collapsing under the weight of the scandal. From 1972 to 1974 the Watergate scandal was frequently a part of The Dick Cavett Show. In fact, Cavett was at the forefront of national TV coverage, interviewing nearly every major Watergate figure as the crisis unfolded. Even non-political guests expressed their opinions about Watergate on the show. With exclusive access to the archive of The Dick Cavett Show, this program documents the scandal in 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 on-going behind-the-scenes battle between the White House and The Dick Cavett Show; culminating with the resignation of the President of the United States on August 9, 1974.
