The Seventies

The United States V Nixon
Season 1 Episode 2 The History Channel September 18, 2016

1972 began with the triumph of President Nixon's trip to Communist China and concluded with his landslide electoral victory over Sen. George McGovern. But sandwiched in between these historic events was a so-called "third rate burglary" at a Washington office complex known as the Watergate that led to the only presidential resignation in American history. This episode will guide us through the maze of break-ins, political dirty tricks and attempted cover-ups as well as the various investigations both in the press and by the government. And at the centre of it all was perhaps the most enigmatic figure in American history, Richard Nixon.

The White House is probably the most famous building in the world: a living symbol, an icon of democracy, and home to one of the most powerful people on Earth. It's where the president of the United States of America charts the course for the country, and where a family lives in the national spotlight. As the iconic monument reaches 200 years of history, this documentary celebrates through the stories of the First Families who have called it home, and through the recollections of workers, historians and members of the press who have spent time within the illustrious building. Standing at the epicentre of global politics, in the heart of the nation's capital, the story of the White House is the story of America itself.
