Description
Two reports on how secretary Fawn Hall was ordered by Colonel Oliver North to alter and destroy secret documents. Hall tells senators (at a hearing of a joint Congressional committee?) of her feelings about doing this, why and how she did it, how North should tell his story, whether it had anything to do with the sale of weapons, and how she did not want the details to get into the press. Male reporter(s) not identified.
