Bookkeeper recalls her Watergate courage

Watergate watchers all know about Deep Throat, the anonymous source made famous in All the President's Men.

But another unnamed informant, called only "the Bookkeeper" was an even more important source for the reporters.

An employee at the Committee to Re-elect the President, Judy Hoback was a young widow when Woodward and Bernstein came knocking on her door.

But she provided crucial information in the early stages of their investigation about who had access to illegal funds.

Now called Judy Miller, the soon-to-be retired bookkeeper spoke with the BBC about her memories of Watergate.
