"Putting his own spin on Harry Truman's description of modern presidents as essentially "public relations men," Richard Nixon surrounded himself with professional image-makers. One of these was White House chief-of-staff, H. R. Haldeman, who carried with him a Super 8mm home movie camera in an attempt to document virtually very aspect of Nixon’s administration. Listen to secretly recorded Oval Office conversations and phone calls, and accompany the president on his historic 1972 China trip, as documented by the Haldeman home movies. Experience, too, the tumult of a White House under siege by anti-war demonstrators."

--Richard Norton Smith
