Tricky Dick Full Episode Guide

  • In a historic landslide, Nixon is re-elected to the Oval Office. But shortly into his second term, the cover-up of a break-in at the Democratic National Committee Headquarters at the Watergate complex starts to fall apart. As the President wages a battle in the press and in the courts, a desperate man becomes his own worst enemy, leaving the American public to pick up the pieces.

  • In 1969, Richard Nixon enters office after navigating one of the most greatest political comebacks of all time only to find that his survival hinges on a key promise: to end the Vietnam War. As the conflict rages on and the anti-war movement gains strength, the president suspects a conspiracy against him, one he will use any means necessary to defeat.

  • To understand the dramatic rise and unprecedented fall of Richard Nixon, one must look to his beginnings. Raised by a family with modest means in a childhood beset by tragedy, Richard Nixon learns early to recognize opportunity where he can and, perhaps more importantly, how to seize it. His years as a serious student give way to a promising political career. But Nixon's meteoric rise is marked by aggressive political tactics, aresentment of the elite, and an unbridled will to win. His early political life climaxes with a dramatic showdown for the presidency against John F. Kennedy.
