Khrushchev Visits IBM

Clip: Season 26 Episode 7 | 1m 22s

During his American tour in 1959, Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev toured the IBM factory in San Jose, California. While visiting, the innovation Khrushchev was most fascinated by was not the computers, but rather the company's cafeteria. "Cold War Roadshow" premieres November 18 on American Experience PBS.
