Soviet television shows California (1976)

What did the Soviet people know about USA? How did they see America? California Today is a short documentary (26 minutes) made in 1976 by the Soviet television. Nature, American working class, banks, roads and cars, Hollywood, military-industrial complex, Berkley university, students protests, conservatory and rock music, beaches, immigrants, Disneyland.

Music includes "My Beautiful Balloon" and "One of These Days".

The web-site CCCP.TV is an online archive of Soviet TV programs: political, for kids, concerts, sports, travel, party congresses... See, for example, one-hour long the First of May parade in Moscow in 1974 or ice hockey match USSR-Canada in 1960.

The archive is not a large one, but I do hope they will grow.
