And the Emmy Goes to the National Security Archive
Press Release: The National Security Archive won the 2005 Emmy Award for outstanding achievement in news and documentary research, presented by the National Television Academy at the 26th Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards ceremony in New York City.
The Emmy recognized the Archive for its work on the documentary "Declassified: Nixon in China," produced by ABC News Productions for the Discovery Times Channel, which premiered the show on December 21, 2004.
The program for the Emmy Awards ceremony described the show's nomination as follows: "President Nixon's historic 1972 trip to China was one of the greatest diplomatic coups in history. This heavily-researched documentary reveals an unknown story behind the one most journalists and historians think they know. To tell it, the producers had to find, sift, evaluate and codify thousands of declassified documents, both from the U.S. government and the secretive Chinese government too. Working in cooperation with the National Security Archive, the program's researchers brought dry government files to life, revealing details that would have rattled the world at the time – including the United States' provision to China of military intelligence and an unspoken agreement on Taiwan."
