CNN to encore CNN Films presentation ‘OUR NIXON’

CNN will encore the CNN Films presentation ‘OUR NIXON’ on Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 10:00pm and again on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 9:00pm and 12:00am.  All times Eastern.

OUR NIXON is an all-archival documentary presenting those home movies for the first time — along with other rare footage — creating an intimate and com­plex portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before.  Throughout Richard Nixon’s presidency, three of his top White House aides obsessively documented their experiences with Super 8 home movie cameras. This unique and personal visual record, created by H.R. Halde­man, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin, was seized by the FBI during the Watergate investigation, then filed away and forgotten for almost 40 years.  OUR NIXON was co-produced by Penny Lane and Brian Frye.
