Footage depicting spread of communism from 1924-1956. Static shots of the globe fixed on the USSR (in red) and slow gradual spread of communism with arrows and dates. Good for crude cold war, spread of communism, red scare depictions. Static shot of a globe, with the Soviet Union in red, "1924" emblazoned across it. Static shot of globe with the Union in red. The date 1924 appears over the map of the USSR. Gradually, little icons appear (I think these are actaully dates but the image is soft and overexposed- hard to decipher) indicating the spread of communism across Europe and China. The changes showing the spread are slow and separated by hot frames - so this was probably edited down later for a voice over accompaniment. Static shot of globe with red USSR and the date 1956 printed on it. This is better exposed than the previous two shots. Camera does an unsteady zoom in to the date 1956 and an insteady zoom out. Exposure changes slightly (lighter) and cam zooms in and out again - still a bit jerky.

June 12, 1987 Excerpt from Remarks on East-West Relations at the Brandenburg Gate in West Berlin. Ronald Reagan praises the few thaws of freedom within the Soviet Union, but wonders if the Soviets' expression for change is real or simply an empty token gesture. "And now the Soviets themselves may, in a limited way, be coming to understand the importance of freedom. We hear much from Moscow about a new policy of reform and openness. Some political prisoners have been released. Certain foreign news broadcasts are no longer being jammed. Some economic enterprises have been permitted to operate with greater freedom from state control. Are these the beginnings of profound changes in the Soviet state? Or are they token gestures, intended to raise false hopes in the West, or to strengthen the Soviet system without changing it?" edit "As I looked out a moment ago from the Reichstag, that embodiment of German unity, I noticed words crudely spray-painted upon the wall, perhaps by a young Berliner, "This wall will fall. Beliefs become reality." Yes, across Europe, this wall will fall. For it cannot withstand faith; it cannot withstand truth. The wall cannot withstand freedom." edit "General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" Much applause and flag-waving.

MCU U.S. President JOHN F. KENNEDY (JFK, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, John Kennedy) continues, "We choose to go to the moon.

TLS crowd applauding. MCU Kennedy speaking, "It is for these reasons that I regard the decision last year to shift our efforts in space from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the Office of the Presidency. In the last 24 hours we have seen facilities now being created for the greatest and most complex exploration in man's history. We have felt the ground shake and the air shattered by the testing of a Saturn C-1 booster rocket, many times as powerful as the Atlas which launched John Glenn, generating power equivalent to 10,000 automobiles with their accelerators on the floor. We have seen the site where five F-1 rocket engines, each one as powerful as all eight engines of the Saturn combined, will be clustered together to make the advanced Saturn missile, assembled in a new building to be built at Cape Canaveral as tall as a 48-story structure, as wide as a city block, and as long as two lengths of this field."

LS West Berlin Press newspaper-sponsored tickerboard, construction crews standing on skeletal tower. MSs white male electricians working on board. TLS crowd gathered on street, peering upward. LS scrolling news flash on ticker, night: "Helmut General Mac Arthur Hat Heute Die Nordkoreanischen Truppen." Korean War newsflash, MacArthur has crossed the 38th parallel. VO: "-- before the so-called elections in the Soviet sector of Berlin this week, the Western zone unveiled a new weapon in the propaganda war. This electric soundboard, towering high above the center of the city, is easily seen in the East Zone. Sponsored by West Berlin newspapers, the sign will carry uncensored news, something East Berliners haven't seen since the Russian occupation began. Despite Communist threats, people read the bulletins. First item to be flashed through the night: General MacArthur's troops have penetrated into North Korea. This is one ray of light that passes through the Iron Curtain." MSs ballot box on street in West Berlin, police officer crossing frame; MS sign on bulletin board-- "An Alle Wahler im Ostsektor Berlins!"-- white men placing ballots into box. The propaganda war between East Berlin and West Berlin intensifies, and the democratic right of voting is the pawn. TLS Deutsche Post newspaper delivery truck coming to stop at curb. MSs white men in matching dark blue uniforms unloading mail bags from truck, delivering and emptying contents of sacks in office; MS stack of bundled ballots. MSs white woman opening ballots with letter opener; CU letter. TLS West Berliners opening mail in large room. MSs East Berliners walking past camera, entering polling place, casting ballots; MS four white male press photographers taking pictures, flashbulbs snapping. VO: "Another step to counter the rigged election in Soviet Berlin: these ballot boxes set up in the Western sectors give East Berliners a chance to show their real feelings, since in their own elections they can only pass on a single slate of Communist candidates, and to vote against them might be dangerous. The ballots are brought to West Berlin's city hall. They are in the form of expired ration cards, making sure that no one votes twice. Over half the population of East Berlin took this opportunity to register their voice against Communism. In the Soviet Zone election, where the choice was between casting the ballot in public or secret with suspicion at least falling on anyone voting in secret, officials reported that the Communist Party received 95 percent report. Secret Police were stationed at every polling station. This letter from the Soviet Zone says the Communists are a plague fiercely hated by the people. Western estimates indicate that this attitude is shared by 9 out of every 10 East Germans. Films of the Communist elections were not permitted. Here are unusual pictures of voting in a typical Iron Curtain country. A yes and a No ballot are given to each voter. One must be dropped in the box, the other discarded..."
