A two-part Timewatch Special that recalls the time, 30 years ago, when the world went to the brink of nuclear war.
Tracing the origins of the crisis to American reaction against the Cuban Revolution, this first film tells the story of the various US-inspired attacks against Cuba and the life of its leader Fidel Castro, who gives his account of events for the first time on television. When Soviet premier Khrushchev decided to protect Cuba with nuclear missiles and President Kennedy demanded their removal, the world held its breath.
