BOX 97-138 Part I: Television Productions, 1956-1990
The Part I: Television Productions series, 1956-1990, includes interviews, research files, notes, notebooks, and scripts documenting Smith's roles as commentator and writer primarily for the productions "Inside Gorbachev's USSR" and "The Power Game." The Gorbachev program provided American viewers with a close look at the Soviet people and dealt with the conflict between reform and the old political system, the efforts toward glasnost in the media, and the escalation of ethnic tensions in some of the Soviet republics. "The Power Game," adapted from Smith's book of the same title, provided an analysis of behind-the-scenes efforts by politicians to gain power and keep it and how they at times used or misused their power. Interview notebooks for "The Power Game" also include transcripts of Smith's introductory comments or "standups" as well as government hearings and speeches.
Arranged alphabetically by name of production and therein by topic or type of material.
