Cold War

Posted: December 16, 2011 in bay of pigs, berlin, CIA, cold war, hungarian uprising

I have been watching company. It is strange being of a certain age where your life, or at least the times you lived through are presented as history AND I am not that old. The series depicts the CIA through the eyes of its operatives in Berlin just after the war (OK I didn’t live through that part but my dad was there) the Hungarian Uprising, the bay of pigs and the breaching of the Berlin wall.
Some of the makeup was a bit dodgy but on the whole the feel of the production was fairly true to life.
Methusalah rides again.
