FROST/ NIXON

7TWO, 10.40pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

A FIRST- CLASS fac­tual drama about one of the great con­fronta­tions in the his­tory of broad­cast­ing. In 1977, TV talk show host David Frost ( Michael Sheen) landed an ex­clu­sive se­ries of in­ter­views with dis­graced US pres­i­dent Richard Nixon. The for­mer head of state thought it would be a puff piece. In­stead, Frost ex­tracted a stun­ning ad­mis­sion of guilt from Nixon about his part in the Water­gate scan­dal.
