Presented to the Centre by Richard Melman, of Jeremy Isaacs Productions, London, 8 Jun 1999.
The Cold War television documentary archive consists of transcripts of 531 interviews concerning events of the Cold War – the political, ideological tension between the United States and the United Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR), 1946-1989, following the end of World War 2, which while falling short of actual war between these two nations, was evident in their foreign and defence policies, and those of their allies.
The collection is arranged in sections as outlined above. The interview transcripts, originally kept in chronological order of filming, have been arranged by country and then in chronological order.
Copies, subject to the condition of the original, may be supplied for research use only. Requests to publish original material should be submitted to the Trustees of the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives, attention of the Director of Archive Services.
