  • Live NBC coverage of a press conference with President Richard Nixon re: the resignation of Secretary of State William Rogers and Watergate.
  • For the first 9 minutes of the press conference see PBS coverage. We missed the first 9 minutes of this press conference, but PBS rebroadcast this event in the evening. So we taped the PBS rebroadcast and then combined the first 9 minutes from PBS with what we did record of NBC.
  • See also CBS, NBC and ABC commentary.
  • Some picture disturbances throughout due to problems with original 1-inch tape.
  • Reporter(s):
    Utley, Garrick;
