The Man Who Saved The World (Episode #1201H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Feb 10, 2019 -- 9:00 PM

The crew could only watch as their superiors entered a battle of wills that would determine the fate of humanity. The story of what happened that fateful day remained hidden for decades, only emerging in Russia in recent years. Now these events will be known to the world.
