The decay of autocracy and growing awareness in Russia among intellectuals for the need for reform. Highlights include meetings with Lenin and Dostoevsky and a unique visit to Siberia. The fourth 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.
