After months of preparation and negotiation, "Nightly News" anchor and managing editor Brian Williams met former NSA contractor Edward Snowden last week in Moscow for his first interview with a U.S. television network.

This video contains the first images of their five-hour meeting at the Hotel Baltschug Kempinski just across the Moscow River from the Kremlin and Red Square. The footage was shot as they walked in a hotel hallway near the library where the interview took place.

The exclusive, wide-ranging interview with Snowden, who received asylum in Russia after leaking classified documents from NSA servers, will air in a one-hour NBC News primetime special on Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern/9 p.m. Central.

"The interview was months in the making and cloaked in the secrecy of his life as a fugitive living in exile overseas," said Williams. "As you will see and hear, Edward Snowden has a lot more to say."
