DOCUMENTARIES > TRAVEL > Across the Soviet Union

From St Petersburg (boat crashes in the Winter Canal) to Moscow (teary weddings and near-arrests in Red Square), a post-Glasnost study of the Russian people, schools, home-life, cultural events.

The young Pioneers of Kiev, the opera of Odessa and a trek through Georgia, experiencing the ruggedly independent Georgians.

Impressive architecture, wonderful characters. A true eye opener to life in modern Russia.
