I thought for a while that it was a piece by Michael Kamen, as it doesn't credit anyone else for it on the CD.

I love this piece so much. I think it has to be one of the most dramatic and powerful pieces on the CD. I can't believe it seems to have got poorer reviews than, say, 'Austria', which I think is lovely, but not among the best on the soundtrack.

The problem is I just can't remember what footage, or storyline it was written for! Obviously it has something to do with Nixon, and I believe this is the episode where his alcoholism really becomes obvious, but I can't think what it may be actually referring to! Can anyone help?! Please email me directly if you can! Thanks!
