Format: DVD
Yes, please can we have it on Region 2? I was one of the generation that grew up with Watergate, and have been obsessed with American politics and history ever since. I don't know what work the DVD producers have done with the series, but the version I've seen on True Movies recently has pretty bad sound and a rather uneven picture. Jason Robards is brilliant as Nixon - especially if you've seen him as an equally brilliant Ben Bradlee in 'All The President's Men.' David Selby, Nicholas Pryor, and Tony Bill never became the stars that they should have, in my opinion. John Houseman is both funny and sinister. Cliff Robertson has that cold demeanour that was all of his own - again, not the great star that he should have been after he upset a very powerful Hollywood figure and was almost blacklisted. (He and Houseman were together in another great political thriller of the 1970's - Sidney Pollack's 'Three Days Of The Condor'). But the star of the show was undoubtedly Robert Vaughan - every word and glance and sibilant was terrific.

The only thing dated about this 1970s tv mini-series are the phones and the fashions. The rest of it is as cynical and corrupt as anything modern politics can produce. It was made in the aftermath of the 1972-4 Watergate scandal and was based on a book by John Ehrlichman - who went to jail for his role in the misdeeds of the Nixon White House. As such, a lot of the characters are based on real people (President Curry = JFK; President Esker Anderson is really LBJ; Richard Monckton is....go on, take a wild guess....and Frank Flaherty is Bob Haldeman, Nixon's hatchet man). Anderson, Monckton and Flaherty are, in their own individual ways, the barracudas of the Washington political scene ('President Anderson' has an endearingly lazy drawl and a nice sense of humour, however, which makes him more sympathetic than Monckton or Flaherty..who have no redeeming personal qualities WHATSOEVER). The whole thing is nicely put together as you watch the power-mad, press-hating Monckton grab for power, move into the presidency with his brutal cronies and then light the fuse for their own downfall through intimidation, burglary, wiretapping and other forms of illegal (and rather fun) skullduggery. Robert Vaughn as Flaherty and Jason Robards as the sour and stormy President Monckton are just wonderful and thoroughly unpleasant throughout. It almost makes you nostalgic for the days of Nixon....well....almost? Buy this - you won't regret it.

I have actually never seen this series but my parents watched it many years ago when it was shown on tv and have raved about it ever since. They are anxious to watch it again but it is still not available in a region 2 format. I would love to be able to get them this as a surprise........so when will it ever be available as anything other than region 1!!!!! As mentioned previously this is long overdue.

IT is now high time that this magnificent series is provided for region 2 viewers. I myself, was fortunate to see the complete series way,way back in the seventies and I am now beginning to wonder which event will occur first - a region 2 distribution or my passing into the wild, blue yonder! Please, please, please be so kind as to humour my wish before I finally snuff it! Thanking you in advance.

This is simply masterpiece TV, and with a widescreen reframing (which it will easily take) 'Washington' re-broadcast would capture the hearts and minds of millions all over again! So come on networks on both sides of the pond! - SHOW IT! This DVD transfer is a bit lumpy and clearly the series needs proper restoration, in particular the sound which is somewhat dire. I suspect the studio gave it a less that loving release just to counteract the numerous bootlegs, and at least for that I'm pleased. As usual, Bob Vaughn steals the show, this time as Frank Flaherty - the Arch Deacon of evil if ever there was one. Buy Now!
