Director Ron Howard's new film documents David Frost's historic interviews with former president Richard Nixon — during which Nixon disclosed his involvement in the Watergate scandal. The film is based on the Tony Award winning play by Peter Morgan.

Howard and Morgan discuss the film, and why the Watergate story still resonates nearly 40 years later.
