This is a bit belated, but I was scrolling channels and just now (5:20 PM in Los Angeles, as I write this) accidentally happened on an original special on the Discovery Channel, which is being repeated later tonight. It’s All the President’s Men Revisited. I missed the first five minutes or so, but it’s narrated by Robert Redford, who appears on camera with Dustin Hoffman, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein and Ben Bradlee, with a lot of talking heads from the time and currently.
What I’ve seen so far is terrific, and I’m recording the rest. It’s two hours and repeats in L.A. at 8 PM. (So, I assume that’ll be 11 PM on the East Coast.) I don’t see any other airings scheduled at the moment. Here’s the write-up on the Discovery website --
"All the President’s Men Revisited brings Watergate to life with riveting archival footage, shocking Oval Office recordings, and compelling new interviews with those who perpetuated the crimes, those who pursued them, and those who portrayed them. The film unravels the story that began with a 'third-rate burglary attempt' and escalated into the first and only Presidential resignation in American history. A remarkable cast tells the tale, including Robert Redford, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, Dustin Hoffman, Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow, and others."
If you want to know more about the show, the Discovery website has a lot of information.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
