| I remember this engrossing drama from the 1980s
I have not seen this drama since it was originally shown in 1987. However, I remember it as an excellent political drama - documenting the historic meeting between Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan in Reykjavik, Iceland.

In this meeting, against advice, Ronald Reagan offered a deal involving massive nuclear disarmament - an offer so monumental that Gorbachev viewed it as politically impossible in the context of a conservative, militaristic USSR administration. The leaders walked away without a deal.

I remember Timothy West and (now-deceased) Robert Beatty as excellent as Gorbachev and Reagan respectively.

I don't know who produced this drama originally - but with the recent death of Ronald Reagan, it is about time that this great drama was released on DVD. Who knows - really cool Special Features might be interviews with the still very active Timothy West - and perhaps original or exert interviews with the man himself - Mikhail Gorbachev ...
