Nixon By Nixon: In His Own Words

In August of 1974, Richard Nixon became the first American president to ever resign from office. During his time as president, Nixon secretly recorded every one his own private conversations held within the Oval Office for the purpose of historical reference but this very act would go against him once the Watergate scandal broke and ultimately lead to his downfall.

Nixon feared that his blunt remarks recorded on tape would be taken out of context and tarnish his presidency forever, because of this he set about preventing their public release, however once he died in 1994 the US government set about releasing the vast collection of recordings, which amounted to over 3,700 hours worth of listening.

The final tapes were made public on August 2013 and this HBO film ensued.
