A six-part series celebrating the natural history of the former USSR.
Together, Russia and the Central Asian Republics are full of scenic splendour, boasting the biggest of forests, boundless steppes, extensive deserts, the oldest and deepest freshwater lake in the world and the largest inland sea in the world - the Caspian. Sitting amid the arid lands bordering Central Asia, the Volga Delta is a wetland seething with aquatic life - including sturgeon - and home to millions of birds including sea eagles, egrets, geese and pelicans. During the autumn it acts as a refuge for tens of thousands of Arctic-nesting whooper swans, and hosts some of Russia's unique saiga antelope from the steppes of Karlmyckia.
Presented by Nikolai Drozdov.

The last in the series looking at the influence of European talent on the American cinema.
A Sense of Difference. By 1941 America was at war. Everyone had their role to play and for some of the exiles based in the movie capital of Los Angeles, the roles had more than a touch of irony. Refugee Jews played screen Nazis as Hollywood fought the propaganda battle.
But the exiles weren't confined to those in the film industry. Writers and composers like Bertolt Brecht and Arnold
Schoenberg also made tinsel town their home.
