End of Cold War videos

I am looking for videos about the end of the Cold War for my class. I have plenty about the collapse of the Berlin Wall, but anything else from 1989 or 1991 which might be "remarkable" or of interest to an undergraduate course would be great. I appreciate any assistance and will gladly share with the list if you send me an email offline. 

Thank you,
