Peter Ustinov traces the early history of Russia, from the first stirrings of its civilisation to the reign of Ivan the Terrible. Highlights include a meeting with Ivan, a visit to the Moscow Circus and scenes from the Bolshoi Operas, production, Boris Gudonov. The first part of a six part series ‘Peter Ustinov’s Russia’ This is history told with a difference in Peter Ustinov’s special brand of humour known to many who saw him on television as a raconteur. This series was made in 1986 soon after the accession to the top job in the then Soviet Union by Mikhail Gorbachev. A time of great optimism and a flowering of expressions which had been suppressed for many years. Therefore it is not only a history of Russia’s past but also a picture of life at that special time of 1986
