Frost/Nixon

  • Produced by Arielle Tepper Madover

The interview that sealed a president's legacy.

British talk-show host David Frost has become a lowbrow laughing-stock. Richard M. Nixon has just resigned the United States presidency in total disgrace over Vietnam and the Watergate scandal. Determined to resurrect his career, Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redeeming himself in his nation's eyes. In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to outtalk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. 

David Frost’s interview with Richard Nixon drew the largest ever for a news interview. Could this British talk-show host, with no political convictions and a playboy reputation, be the one to elicit an apology from the man who committed one of the biggest felonies in American political history?
