Inside Cuba : Communism's Last Stand?
Thirty-five years after the Cuban Revolution, the island nation fell on exceptionally hard times. The collapse of the Soviet Union, combined with the strength of the U.S. Trade Embargo led to scarcities of food, medicine and other necessities of life. In 1993 two surgeons from Buffalo, New York were invited by the Cuban Ministry of Public Health to exchange medical information with their counterparts in Havana. During his coverage of this medical mission, WIVB-TV reporter Rich Newberg and photographer Don Yearke, provide a rare glimpse into a Cuban society struggling to survive and hungry for news from the outside world.
