A portion of the G. Gordon Liddy show on the 25th anniversary of the burglary at the Watergate Hotel was shown. The radio program was broadcast from the Premier Hotel, which is directly across the street from the Watergate Hotel. Exactly 25 years earlier, the site - then a Howard Johnson hotel - was the lookout for the Watergate burglars. Several persons who have investigated the affair talked about the history and outcome of the case. An audio tape of comments by Charles Colson was played to begin the program. Charles Colson, special counsel to President Nixon from 1969-73, was the first Nixon administration member to be imprisoned for Watergate. G. Gordon Liddy, who organized and directed the burglaries at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate complex, was imprisoned from 1973 through 1977 for his involvement in the burglaries. close
