Summary: This program tracks the Cuban Revolution from its roots in the dictatorship of Batista, the guerilla war under the leadership of Castro and Che Guevara, their triumph-and then the switch in economic policy which turned the U.S. into an enemy. The program follows the subsequent changes in policy which turned a "good" revolution into a totalitarian one, and Cuba from a client state of the United States into a client of the Soviet Union, which resulted in the missile confrontation with the U.S. in 1962 and the Bay of Pigs, and left Cuba-unable to export sugar to the U.S.-to export revolution around the world.
