Informative with never before seen footage of the rise and fall of one man.
2 April 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Plenty has been shown about Richard Nixon from movies, interviews, news reports, specials and documentary style programs. Well "CNN" has scored with this 4 part series called rightfully "Tricky Dick" which shows never before seen footage and clips of his life and political journey. It's full of ups and downs and it's a showcase of a complex and power hungry man. Overall well done a must watch for political and historical buffs.
