The Cold War, Episodes 1-24

This is a companion web site to the award-winning twenty-four episode documentary that appeared on television in 1998. The web site includes links to historical documents; interactive maps; profiles of key figures; a glossary; narratives about culture, the space race, espionage, and the bomb; images; transcripts of interviews with key figures, games; links to other sites; and transcripts of chats with journalists, scientists, and historians about the topics of each episode of the TV series. Some of the narratives are excerpts from ?Cold War: An Illustrated History," the companion book to the TV series.
