Event Details

More than any other conflict, the Cold War was fought on the battlefield of the human mind. 30 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union its legacy still endures – and in today’s uncertain times it is more resonant than ever. 60 years on from the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962, we welcome leading historian Martin Sixsmith who witnessed the end of the Cold War first-hand reporting for the BBC from Moscow during the Gorbachev and Yeltsin years. Using a vast array of untapped archives and unseen sources he vividly recreates the tension and paranoia of the Cold War on both sides of the Iron Curtain in a compelling new talk.
