Fall of Berlin Wall 30th Anniversary

Nov. 9 marked the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. After its 1961 construction, the barrier symbolized the ideological Cold War divisions between East and West.  American History TV  and  C-SPAN ’s Washington Journal  were LIVE with three hours of interviews and viewer calls from the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Guests included Angela Stent of Georgetown University, as well as authors Hope Harrison and Steve Vogel. Also, Carrie Christoffersen of the Newseum joined us to talk about their exhibit on Cold War Berlin. 
1979 Iran Hostage Crisis

On Nov. 4, 1979, Iranian protesters stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took 66 Americans hostage. We looked back 40 years to talk about the Iran Hostage Crisis with former foreign service officer John Limbert, who was held for 444 days, and Stuart Eizenstat, who worked in the Carter administration during the crisis. John Limbert is author of  Negotiating with Iran: Wrestling the Ghosts of History . Stuart Eizenstat is author of President Carter: The White House Years .

We visit the Johnson County Community College classroom of professor Tai Edwards who teaches about the expansion of the United States during the Spanish-American War and the acquisition of Hawaii.

Oral Histories — Nixon Impeachment, Hillary Rodham Clinton & William Weld

6 pm and 10 pm ET Sunday 

Hillary Rodham and William Weld served as lawyers on the staff of the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment inquiry of President Richard Nixon in 1973 and 1974. She was a recent Yale Law School graduate when hired by the Democrats' lead special counsel; he was an associate at a Boston law firm and was hired by committee Republicans, who were in the minority. They reflect on their experience in these back-to-back interviews from the Richard Nixon Presidential Library oral history collection. They were conducted by Timothy Naftali, Nixon library director from 2007-2011. William Weld is currently running for the Republican presidential nomination.
