Synopsis by Alice Day
The first installment of the Watergate series finds public opinion of President Nixon plummeting in 1970 as protests mount against the escalation of the Vietnam War. As his paranoia grows, Nixon approves covert operations that originate from the White House. Watergate: Break-In follows the events leading up to the break-in at the Democratic Party headquarters, as well as the arrest of the five burglars. Former CBS and CNN correspondent Daniel Schorr provides narration for this group of programs that give an unflinching look at a dark period in America's history.
