We investigate the Cold War: when did it happen? What happened during the Cold War? Why did it happen? And how? Between the USA and the USSR, things were very cold, whereas over in Korea and Vietnam things got hot-hot-hot! Listen out in the extras for James's Cold War joke - did Dad understand it? After the outtakes, there's a bonus couple of minutes about who invented the 'cold war' - we discover the famous writer who invented the term and predicted the future! Here are some QUESTIONS to see how well you understood today’s episode: When did the cold war begin and end? Why was it called the cold war? Where did the cold war become hot? What is the difference between the Soviet Union during the cold war and Russia today? What was M.A.D.? What’s going on in the world today that is the same or similar to how it was during the Cold War?
