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.

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,
