Provides a portrait of the varied daily lives of people in the "new Russia." The program combines historical, political, cultural, and personal perspectives to successfully develop a profile of Russia and its people in modern times. Interviews with Russian citizens, and Americans living in Russia, give individual accounts of the current society, and remembrances of times past. Positive aspects of the country are emphasized, but overall the program remains relatively balanced and unbiased.
Presents a summary of the vast complexities of the culture and history of both the former Soviet Union and contemporary Russia. (Study guide available upon request.)
