Joseph Stalin died 20 years ago this March. More than any other political figure of our century he changed the course of history.
While he lived and ever since he died his actions and his personality have provoked the most contradictory opinions. Was he 'the creator of modern Russia,' 'the greatest criminal in history' - or both? His achievements are indisputable; the price paid in human terms almost immeasurable.
What are the ends that could justify such violent means? What went on in the mind of the despot who killed off almost 20 million of his countrymen? What is the nature, the construction, the essence of a Communist regime - and what is it like living under it?
From factual documentary material and the more subjective voices of poets and writers, this programme pieces together the story of Stalin's life, the story of the gigantic system which he created - or which created him? with Michael Gough as the Author
Sebastian Shaw , Lee Montague Peter Copley as Narrators
and Jill Balcon as Anna Akhmatova
