Interesting program note: The Discovery Channel and Robert Redford will revisit Watergate — pretty much 30 years old now — in an April 21 documentary called "All the President's Men Revisited." The title's a play, of course, off Redford's '76 screen classic, but this film will get into much more than a movie. Here's the description:

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN REVISITED gains access to the top players, from those directly involved in Watergate to others from politics, journalism and the media. Mr. Redford, who famously portrayed The Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward in All the President’s Men, Mr. Woodward, Mr. [Carl] Bernstein, and actor Dustin Hoffman, who portrayed Mr. Bernstein on-screen, reflect on the events that impacted journalism, the American presidency and the global political culture. How has Watergate changed the presidency? What effect has the scandal had on our political leaders? How useful and productive were the collaborative efforts of the U.S. Congress?
