Cold War

Cold War is a twenty-four part documentary series narrated by Kenneth Branagh, dealing with the relations between the United States, the Soviet Union and their respective allies between the end of World War II to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Produced by Pat Mitchell and Jeremy Isaacs. Written by Hella Pick, Jeremy Isaacs, Lawrence Freedman, Neal Ascherson, Hugh O'Shaughnessy and Germaine Greer. The series features interviews and footage of the events that shaped the tense relationships between the Soviet Union and the United States.

The series did receive some negative criticism because of the omissions of several Cold War issues and topics, including the Communist takeovers of South Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia in 1975, the subsequent unification of Vietnam and Vietnamese refugee crisis, the failed Communist revolution in Indonesia in 1965, China after Mao's passing, from the trial of the Gang of Four to the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989, Bulgaria, Albania, and more details on the Dominican crisis of 1965.
