The Cold War
The Cold War sheds a new light on the clandestine wars fought between the US and the Soviet Union. This documentary takes us across the world in the turbulent 50s, 60s and 70s: an era of spies, secrets and lies. Thanks to recently disclosed images and files from the CIA and Russia's KGB, and with access to rare archive footage, we reveal a clearer picture of what was happening behind the scenes.
