AMERICAN EXPERIENCE | Cold War Roadshow
Premiering November 18, 2014 on American Experience PBS. For twelve days in September 1959, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev traveled the United States from coast to coast, creating a media circus as hundreds of reporters followed his every move. Americans were fascinated by the communist leader and the trip served to ease Cold War tensions -- if only for a short time. Tuesday, November 18 at 9 PM.
