1. NYTimes: Robert Redford's "Watergate"

Richard Helms and Robert Redford on the set of Three Days of the Condor

Watergate Reporting, the Second Draft
Robert Redford to Produce a Documentary About Watergate

Published: April 2, 2012

Rarely does reality intersect with role playing the way it did two Sundays ago in Bob Woodwards living room.

Meeting him there were Carl Bernstein, his writing partner at The Washington Post during the Watergate scandal in the 1970s; Ben Bradlee, their top editor at the time; and Robert Redford, the actor who played Mr. Woodward in All the Presidents Men, the 1976 film that dramatized The Posts presidential detective work.

Jokes were cracked about the four decades that had passed since Watergate You guys, were really lucky we recognize each other, Mr. Redford said but the men were together for a serious reason. Mr. Redford was starting work on another project on Watergate, this time as a documentarian.

Commissioned by the Discovery Channel, the project, All the Presidents Men Revisited, will be a two-hour television documentary about the scandal that doomed Richard M. Nixons presidency and will explore its effects on politics and the media in the 40 years since. It will have its premiere in 2013 but will be announced by Discovery this week at its annual presentation for advertisers...
