One of the most popular documentaries in the library of the Icarus Films distribution company, Disco and Atomic War is an engrossing and entertaining account of the futile attempts of the Soviet media and its propaganda machine to counteract the influence of free media seeping through the air and borders of the Soviet Republic of Estonia from the coasts of Finland. Becoming virtual battlefield, Estonian airwaves were jammed from both sides, yet the pull of the Western TV broadcast for the entertainment-starved public proved to be too strong. J.R. andDallas make a special appearance.
