Synopsis by Alice Day
In the second installment of the BBC-produced Watergate, the arrest of the five burglars sets in motion a series of events that are characterized by mistakes. When the Watergate burglary is linked to the White House, major administration officials, including Howard Hunt, G. Gordon Liddy, Jeff Magruder, John Mitchell, and Richard Kleindiest try to deal with the problems. Journalist Daniel Schorr narrates as Watergate: Cover-Up examines the struggle to hide or destroy evidence, and plans are made to keep the scandal from expanding into a larger debacle.
