The Hunt for the True October [videorecording]

an Opus Television production for S4C International ; producers, J. Mervyn Williams, Amanda Rees
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
"On the night of October 24, 1917, a police patrol stopped two men on the streets of St. Petersburg, but failing to recognize their quarry, the police let them pass. One of them, disguised as a tramp, was the future founder and leader of the Soviet Union: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. In this program, Cambridge University's Orlando Figes, author of A people's tragedy, and Vitaly Startsev, of St. Petersburg Herzen University, investigate the circumstances of the October Revolution, exploding the popular myths reinforced by Sergei Eisenstein's film October and exploring the what-ifs that could have led to democracy in Russia instead of dictatorship"--Container.
