"I find hope in the work of long-established groups such as the Arms Control Association...[and] I find hope in younger anti-nuclear activists and the movement around the world to formally ban the bomb."

The Man Who Save the World is, as you might expect, a film about a man who saved the world. Yet it is more, so much more: documentary, road trip and touching reconciliation between estranged son and mother.

Germany and, to a lesser extent, Japan would have dominated the world. As Churchill warned, "If we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science." The U.S. would have remained mired in economic stagnation and would have been forced to pursue policies in a manner that wouldn't upset the world's new masters.

Charles Krauthammer, in his book Things That Matter (Crown Forum, 2013)--a fascinating collection of his columns and essays--has a short chapter aptly entitled "Winston Churchill: The Indispensable Man," in which he makes the case for why Time magazine should have chosen Churchill in 1999 as the Person of the Century. "Because only Churchill carries that absolutely required criterion: indispensability. Without Churchill the world today would be unrecognizable--dark, impoverished, tortured. ... Above all, victory required one man without whom the fight would have been lost at the beginning. It required Winston Churchill."

On October 22, 1962, after reviewing photographic evidence, President John F. Kennedy informed the world that the Soviet Union was building secret missile bases in Cuba, just 90 miles off the shores of Florida. For the next 13 days, the world held its breath as the Soviet Union and the United States confronted each other about missiles stationed in Cuba. While politicians sought a resolution to the standoff, no one was aware of the events taking place inside the Soviet submarine B-59 in the waters off the coast of Florida.

The Man Who Saved the World, premiering Tuesday, October 23 at 9 pm ET on PBS (check local listings), tells the unsung story of Soviet naval officer Vasili Arkhipov, the Brigade Chief of Staff on submarine B-59, who refused to fire a nuclear missile and saved the world from World War III and nuclear disaster.

For his unparalleled contributions in using science to feed the world, Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1977), the Public Welfare Medal (2002) by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Medal of Science (2005), and the Congressional Gold Medal (2007). In 2014 a statue of him was placed in the National Statuary Hall of the United States Congress; he is the sole scientist represented there.

It amazed us, the reverence in which President Kennedy is held in that part of the world. Everybody there knows the story of PT 109, and they still think very fondly of President Kennedy, and of the United States.

MATT PORTER: What was it like meeting the widow and the family, and did they-- obviously we all have a deep appreciation for President Kennedy as Americans, as he was 35th president. But for Solomon Islanders way on the other side of the world, having a similar reverence, what was that like? And what kind of things that you talk about?

MATT PORTER: Well, thank you for listening to this week's episode of JFK 35. If you'd like to learn more about the man who saved JFK, check out our podcast page about this week's episode. On it, we include pictures of the two men, the letter from Biaku Gasa and also some pictures of John and his team with the extended families of both men.

Widescreen. The story of Stanislav Petrov, a man who single-handedly averted a full scale nuclear world war, but now struggles to get his life back on track--before it's too late. Not Rated. Dubbed and in Russian with English subtitles. 113 minutes.

Churchill was one of the great statesmen of world history. But had he never set foot in the House of Commons, he would still be remembered today. He led one of the most remarkable lives of modern times. Born the grandson of a British duke and a New York millionaire, he attended Harrow and the Royal Military College at Sandhurst. The next few years were filled with adventure and heroics as he both fought as a soldier and worked as a war correspondent, a time recalled in one of his many immensely readable books, My Early Life (1930). 041b061a72
