Video

This program presents a film produced in the former Soviet Union as propaganda celebrating the "hive." Host Charles Collingwood first looks at the film without its soundtrack, as a natural history film, and then comments on its use as a propaganda film. Viewed from a historical perspective, the McCarthy Era and Cold War mentality of Americans is evident and provides an interesting angle to the subject at hand. The conclusion of this show looks at American individualism in a patriotic and ethnocentric manner.
