Intro talk: “Capital Leaks: Watergate 45 Years Later” by William Pederson, LSUS professor of political science and American studies
Looking back over almost half a century, how did Watergate change our country and shape the years that followed? Leaks are still coming out of Washington – how have Deep Throat’s successors learned from his landmark secret-telling?

After more than 30 years of silence, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the Watergate tipster. This unbelievable true story chronicles the personal and professional life of the uncompromising Felt. Starring Liam Neeson and Diane Lane. Drama/History, 103 min., PG-13.
