The Birth of the Cold War

The Birth of the Cold War(1997) Hosted by Tom Brokaw, this is an ‘NBC White Paper’ account of the death of Stalin and the rise of Khrushchev. This seems dated and, at times, superficial several generations later. The historical value is to see how NBC reported these events at that time. William Taubman’s magnificent Khrushchev provides an excellent benchmark of how well spot news reporting holds up in hind-sight assessments.
