This is a documentary in six parts with a seventh counterfactual piece available. As one watches the documentary, a Document Dossier accumulates allowing people to look in more detail at the subjects being discussed on the documentary. These "documents" include photos, tapes of ExComm meetings and presidential phone calls, videos shot in the 1950s and 1960s, audio clips, copies of letters, and videos of modern experts discussing the events. The titles of the Chapters in the documentary are (1) Context: Life in 1960; (2) Seeds of Conflict: Feb 1960-Dec 1961; (3) Opening Moves: May-Oct 22, 1962; (4) Escalation: Oct 23-Oct 25, 1962; (5) The Brink of War: Oct 26-Oct 28, 1962; (6) The Legacy: Post 1962. The counterfactual segment is called What If?: An Alternate History and is done in the same style as the documentary pieces. I am calling this a Learning Object Repository, but that might not be the most accurate description.
Well-done documentary that can be used in segments. Production quality is high. Wonderful set of primary sources associated with it. However, you cannot get to the primary sources unless you first enter the documentary and "acquire" them by letting the documentary play.
