Elizabeth Cobbs and Mark Kramer on the Cold War in 1968 Historian and documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Cobbs and Mark Kramer, program director of Harvard University’s Project on Cold War Studies, talked about the Cold War as part of C-SPAN’s “1968: America in Turmoil” series. The Cold War provided the backdrop for the events of 1968, whether in Vietnam, during the presidential campaign, or in the space race. As the year came to a close, the Apollo 8 mission sent three astronauts into the moon’s orbit for the first time, and their live Christmas Eve broadcast reading from Genesis was watched by millions worldwide."You saved 1968," read one telegram to the crew.

The program began with a three-minute NASA video clip on Apollo 8. close
