The untold, behind-the-scenes story of the landmark 1977 David Frost-Richard Nixon interviews, by the celebrated historian whose research team helped Frost make television history. 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. Effectively removed from the reach of prosecutors, Nixon returned to California, uncontrite and unconvicted, convinced that time would exonerate him of any wrongdoing and certain that history would remember his great accomplishments--the opening of China and the winding down of the Vietnam War--and forget his "mistake," the "pipsqueak thing" called Watergate. In 1977, three years after his resignation, Nixon agreed to a series of interviews with television personality David Frost. Conducted over twelve days they resulted in twenty-eight hours of taped material, which were aired on prime-time television and watched by more than 50 million people worldwide.
