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.
