In Part 6 of this CHP 10-Year Anniversary Program looking back at the visit to China in 1972 of Richard Nixon, we're still in October 1971.

Kissinger is deftly trying to get Zhou Enlai to back off on few points. Because the communique could not be finalized General Al Haig was sent back in January to nail down final details for the visit of Nixon in February 1972.

And then the moment happens.

Nixon lands in Beijing and has that magic moment with Zhou Enlai at the steps of Air Force One. Next episode we'll conclude with the actual visit of Nixon and his historic meetings with Mao and Zhou.
