The October 1917 Revolution and After [electronic resource]

Reuters Television
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
A documentary presentation of the events of the October Revolution, from the defeat of the czarist armies and famine in Russia, to the overthrow of Nicholas and the assumption of power by the Communists, drawn from Russian and Western newsreel footage and from the famous Soviet propaganda films that dramatized some of the events of the Revolution. The program also shows the effects of the Revolution in Western Europe: innocents and idealists cynically goaded and provoked to marches, protests, and strikes that were-inevitably-met with brutal repression.
