Sputnik Fever (2007)
Sputnik Mania (original title)

The launch of Sputnik 50 years ago almost triggered a nuclear World War III. Global catastrophe was averted, however, because of a private agreement between two ex-generals. Now, with the help of recently released documents from the former Soviet Union, the full story of how close we cam to global nuclear war can be told for the first time.
