My Russia

DVD1986 60 Minutes

Peter Ustinov's personal impressions of modern Russia.

Peter Ustinov presents his personal impressions of life in Russia today. Highlights include visits to the capital of Siberia, Novosibirsk, which Ustinov likens to Houston; and visits to Moscow, Leningrad and Tbilisi, Georgia, where Ustinov is treated to a special party celebrating his birthday. The sixth 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.
