Re: End of Cold War videos

Thank you everyone for the replies. Most have suggested the CNN documentary series from the late 1990s, the various videos of Nicolae Ceausescu readily available on YouTube, the People's Century documentary series, and the NY Times video "The Man Opened the Gate." I thought I'd share and say a quick thank you to everyone who replied.
