Abstract:

An oral/visual history of the U.S. goal of containing Communism from 1945 to 1985. Peter Jennings and Ted Koppel, ABC-TV news correspondents, guide viewers through four decades of American foreign policy. Pt. 1 focuses on the days following World War II, the post-war boom in America, the Rosenberg trial, and civil war in Asia. Pt. 2 reviews the signing of the armistice to end the Korean War, the invention of television and the discovery of the polio vacine, civil rights, McCarthyism, and the Soviet launch of Sputnik. Pt. 3 examines the short-lived Kennedy era and the steps that led to the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis, Lyndon Johnson's agenda for social change, U.S. involvement in Vietnam, Richard Nixon's relection and resignation in the aftermath of Watergate, and a nation headed for a gas crisis. Pt. 4 starts with a retrospective look at 200 years of the nation's history as we begin restoration of the Statue of Liberty, then continues with the Vietnam legacy, the election of Jimmy Carter, the Iranian hostage crisis, the Reagan election and agenda, and the Geneva Summit.
