The dramatic retelling of the now famous Richard Nixon interview by David Frost and the weeks preceeding the `event'.
David Frost needs help on an airplane to England to make sure he gets a good nights sleep but hires Lucy which is never a good thing. She has to stay awake during the whole flight to keep visitors away. Once on the plane Lucy's constant distracting keeps him awake. After creating an international incident Lucy then falls asleep while appearing on David Frost's TV show to explain it.
A historic meeting so gripping and poignant it has been adapted into an award-winning stage play and a major motion picture.
The Frost Nixon Interviews are recognized as one of the great media events of the twentieth century. First broadcast in May 1977, they drew the biggest ever worldwide audience for a news interview. Forty-five million people watched in America alone. During the over twenty eight grueling hours, Frost questioned Nixon on everything from Vietnam to China, from abuse of power to the final days. But the most tense and gripping sessions were on Watergate. Two entire days were devoted to the subject.
Never before - and never afterward - would Nixon confront the issue of Watergate, particularly in a forum where he had no advanced knowledge of the questions and no right even to see the edited program before it was broadcast. A picture emerges of a White House under siege, of burglars and hush money, of a Nixon close to tears, having to sacrifice his closest aides - culminating in the unprecedented sight of a President apologizing to his people.
This program also contains new footage with Sir David Frost shot in 2007 discussing the historical impact of the interview along with his reactions of their famous encounter. Frost also discusses his views on Peter Morgan's interpretation and screenplay adaptation of this historical event.
