In October 1974, the eyes of the world were focused on the United States as the trial of H.R. Haldeman, John Erlichman, John Mitchell, Robert Mardian, and Kenneth Parkinson began. Nixon had resigned, and the Watergate co-conspirators had to answer to the court for their alleged involvement in the break-in and coverup.

The official court transcripts of this famous trial are now available in their entirety to students in political science, history, journalism, and government. The New York Times acquired these transcripts daily to support the efforts of its on-the-scene reporters during the trial. This historic collection filmed from those transcripts includes the day-to-day account of the trial proceedings from October 15, 1974 through January 1, 1975, plus the sentencing of the defendants in February 1975.

Watergate is a topic that sparks on-going interest and allegations even today, and access to the nearly 10,000 pages in the official transcript is in demand as valuable background file for exploring the Watergate affair.

These documents represent a permanent, timely collection that will only increase in historical value in the coming years.
