OUR NIXON is an all-archival documentary presenting the Super 8 home movies of H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin for the very first time. The footage from Nixon's aides, which obsessively documents their time in the White House, was seized by the FBI during the Watergate investigation, then filed away and forgotten for almost 40 years. The home movies are presented with other rare footage, creating an intimate and complex portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before.

CNN will be airing the documentary on Thursday, August 1, at 9:00. Filmmaker, UK Law Professor Brian Frye, will be live blogging during the screening. Join in the conversation at
