The scandals and achievements of the United States President who oversaw school integration and the historic Moon Landing before resigning due to his involvement in the Watergate scandal are investigated in a comprehensive documentary exploring the life and career of Richard Milhous Nixon. The 37th President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon was an enigmatic man whose remarkable legacy forever altered the landscape of American politics. While some view him as a hero, others view him as one of the most reprehensible politicians ever to achieve top office. In addition to supervising the establishment of the DEA and EPA, Nixon also played a key role in opening up China to the West. Now, exhaustive research, detailed interviews, newly released White House recordings, home movies shot by Nixon staffers, and the daily recordings of Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman provide unparalleled insight into the manner in which the president's contempt and distrust of his own staff ultimately led to his spectacular downfall.
