Home movies and archival footage of Richard Nixon reveal personal, public persona of 39th President

45 years after a break-in at the Democratic National Committee offices at the Watergate building complex in Washington, D.C., CNN Films will air Our Nixon, an intimate portrait of the 39th president’s time in office told wholly through archival footage.  The two-hour film will air Saturday, July 01, beginning at 8:00pm Eastern.  Our Nixon is co-produced by Brian Frye and Penny Lane.

Much of the film’s footage was shot by three of Nixon’s top White House aides, H.R. Halde­man (Chief of Staff, 1969-1973), John Ehrlichman (Assistant to the President, Domestic Affairs, 1969-1973), and Dwight Chapin (Deputy Assistant to the President, 1969-1973).  Throughout Richard Nixon’s presidency, the men documented their experiences with Super 8 home movie cameras for a unique and personal visual record of their lives and work with Nixon.  The result is an intimate and com­plex depiction of the Nixon presidency as rarely seen.

Our Nixon will also stream live for subscribers via CNNgo (at www.CNN.com/go, and via CNNgo apps for AppleTV, Roku, Amazon Fire, and Samsung TV), as well as via the CNN mobile apps for iOS and Android.  The film will be available for streaming via CNNgo beginning Sunday, July 2 through Dec. 31, 2017, via CNNgo platforms, and CNN mobile apps.

CNN Expands Content Offerings on Amazon Alexa

Building on the CNN Skill made available to Amazon Echo, Amazon Tap and Echo Dot owners in 2016, CNN has expanded its offerings on Amazon platforms to include daily ‘Flash Briefings’ and programming for the new Amazon Echo Show product.

On Amazon’s Echo Show, users can dive straight to the topic they want to hear, and now, watch with the “CNN skill.” With the product’s new video offerings, the skill features video clips from CNN television minutes after air. After enabling the CNN skill, Amazon Alexa users can find the top stories and breaking news topics covered on CNN in near real time. The news is curated throughout the day by CNN’s editorial staff who tracks developments in the top stories, updating Alexa and offering audiences the ability to watch back segments on the news that matters the most to them. To discover CNN on the platform, just say, “Alexa, Open CNN.”

CNN will also update its daily flash briefing to include a morning video Flash Briefing, hosted by CNN’s New Day anchors, Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota. Audio from this content will also be available across all Amazon Echo devices in the CNN Flash Briefing skill, as well as other platforms like Google Home and iTunes. This update to the CNN Flash Briefing will take advantage of the new video capabilities of the Amazon Show, and refine past updates that replaced a text-to-speech experience with a more curated, twice daily audio program. To find the CNN Flash Briefing, enable the “CNN Flash Briefing” skill and move it to the top of your flash briefing list in the Settings section of the Amazon Alexa app.

CNN is also adding a new voice to audio news with CNN Politics Reporter and Editor-at-Large, Chris Cillizza. Cillizza will anchor a new audio politics briefing, delivered in five minutes or less, every weekday starting at 7pm ET. "The Point with Chris Cillizza" will be available everywhere you listen to podcasts and through Amazon Echo Flash Briefings and Google Home news briefings.

CNN was the first publisher to deliver topic-based TV coverage in near-real time on Amazon Echo, Amazon Tap, and Echo Dot. With this expansion, CNN’s audio offerings now include a custom CNN skill on Amazon Alexa, CNN action on Google Home, two separate daily news briefings via Amazon Alexa’s Flash Briefing and Google Home’s Narrated News, alongside podcasts available on both platforms through TuneIn.

CNN Wins Prince Rainier III Special Prize at Monte Carlo TV Festival

CNN Wins Prince Rainier III Special Prize at Monte Carlo TV Festival

CNN's 'Midway: A Plastic Island', a revealing documentary on the tiny Pacific island on the frontline of the world's fight against discarded plastic, received the Prince Rainier III Special Prize at the 57th Monte Carlo Television Festival Tuesday night.

CNN's Nick Paton Walsh, Ingrid Formanek and Deborah Rayner were on hand to accept the prestigious award from Monte Carlo Television Festival Honorary President HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.

About Midway: A Plastic Island:
Last summer CNN got exclusive access to Midway Atoll in the north Pacific Ocean, where the plastic we throw away each day washes up on the beach, works its way into the ocean and potentially ends up in our food. From the frontline, CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh, Ingrid Formanek, Jackson Loo and Mark Phillips got a closer look at the toll our disposable culture is taking on the wildlife there – and the health implications for the rest of the world. Watch the documentary here. 

Impact of Midway: A Plastic Island:
CNN's 'Midway: A Plastic Island' has been integrated into educational resources in the UK as a unique way to explore the impact of plastic pollution. CNN also recently supported a children's film festival at the London IMAX, where more than 2,000 children from schools across the UK gathered to watch the video reports they created based on CNN's reporting from Midway.
