A major BBC documentary, Russia sees Jonathan Dimbleby attempt to put through the greatest nation on Earth in the course of a journey of 10,000 miles. The final result is 60 episodes full five minutes.
And in general, is a very strong release. Billed as TV’s look first of its kind in the nation, takes us through Dimbleby road, rail and foot as he undertakes his adventure, and looking to Russia undoubtedly gets a lot of stereotypes that can be used to view .
At best, Russia is a fascinating piece, brilliant television documentary, discovering new things really interesting and a lot of individual stories. Dimbleby may not be the most obvious host, sometimes getting a little too much of himself in the mix rather than focusing on the nation that is there to teach, but generally does a commendable job.
However, inevitably, is the nation of Russia itself is the main attraction here. And although you can not help feeling that this documentary only scratches the surface of the nation, is still a comprehensive introduction to the welcome and a country once mysterious.
