Cold War Roadshow tells the story of one of the most bizarre episodes in the annals of modern history--the unprecedented trip across America in 1959 by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, the world leader of communism and America's arch nemesis. The visit was an opportunity to halt the escalating threats of the Cold War and chart a new course toward peaceful coexistence. For the American press, it was the media story of the year.

Nearly forgotten historic event brought

Comments about PBS American Experience: Cold War Roadshow DVD:

This is an outstanding documentary, consisting of superb, crisp color and rare black and white footage, along with amazing interviews of this largely forgotten historic event. This series continually outdoes itself, and is the benchmark for documentaries. After watching this installment on Khrushchev's visit to the United States, one cannot feel frustrated with how fate intervenes in history. Had the U2 plane not been shot down, and the trip gone smoother, the Cold War may have had an earlier thaw. Fruits of these planned mutual trips between the USSR and USA could have planted the seeds for better relations with the next president as well.
