From the Cuban Missile Crisis to Ukraine: How Television Has Captured US-Russia Relations Over Sixty Years

Thursday, October 13, 2022
7:00 pm
The Paley Museum, 25 West 52 Street, NYC

The 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis was the most dangerous confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union, almost bringing the anxious world watching the ordeal on TV to a nuclear apocalypse. Since then, the relationship between these two global superpowers has been rocky, ranging from détente to distrust, always well documented on the nightly news. The Paley Center and the JFK Library Foundation are convening journalists, scholars, and television producers to explore how these global powers have been captured in news and scripted programs over the past sixty years.

This program is made possible by generous support from the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
