    Why do history documentaries or docu-dramas got to have presenters who are overly self-sufficient, and either actors who are historian wannabes or historians who are actor wannabes, when it would be so much better without them? Damian Lewis is not the worst case, but he's definitely one of these who just loves to be in the picture, and this is his first effort in such a role. His constant interruptions in fine dramatizations together with sections of interviews with people who actually were in the action, and an otherwise well balanced narration, but where Lewis is looking out of some imaginary window to the world or overacts, appearing like he thinks everybody must love his consistently smug appearance, and that this is just such an improvement to the total, is just disturbing and annoying. It's on the verge of embarrassing and simply too much, and that's a shame, because it practically destroys what otherwise could be a well made series about exciting stories from the Cold War. Another weakness is that there is little or nothing in the presentations of each case about the background or deeper context to the circumstances, like with the Islamic revolution in Iran. Except from the dramatizations and interesting interviews with true witnesses or other people related to the matter, the total is basically superficial.

    Really interesting documentary series via Smithsonian Channel. I highly recommend.
