Russia (Miniseries) (1986)

Aka: Peter Ustinov's Russia: A Personal Journey

Acclaimed actor, director, writer and linguist Peter Ustinov brought the brilliance, the colour and the contradictions of Russia in this miniseries. Ustinov "interviews" famous (and infamous) characters from Russian history, including Ivan the Terrible, Catherine the Great, and Leo Tolstoy. Teeming with information about the history, the culture, and the people, this series helps to dispel many misconceptions and prejudices that have developed over the centuries about Russia and its citizens. These beautifully photographed programs provide students with an intimate look at Russian life and are an extraordinary addendum to social studies and world history courses.
