FROM THIS EPISODE

Thirty years ago today, the discovery of a piece of tape on a basement door in the capital-s Watergate complex resulted in the arrest of five men for breaking into the offices of the Democratic Party. The incident the White House dismissed as a -third rate burglary- brought down a president and added phrases like -stonewall,- -expletive deleted,- and -what did he know, and when did he know it?- to our language. It produced a host of political and campaign finance reforms and a craze for investigative journalism. We examine the political and journalistic legacy of Watergate with Nixon advisors, a Pulitzer Prize-winning professor who has enlisted his students in an investigation of the Deep Throat mystery, and White House counsel John Dean.
