Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This show explores the political "madness" that existed during the Cold War years as different countries silently threatened one another with nuclear retaliation for various acts and omissions, fully knowing that such a nuclear confrontation could destroy the entire world. New footage is shown of both Castro and Khrushchev, while other film clips reveal intimidating aspects of the Russian "Super Bombs." Sergei Khrushchev and Victor Suvorov are among those interviewed during this revealing look at the undeclared war. Actor Charlton Heston narrates this program featuring background scenery shot in Moscow, London, and Providence, RI.
