Every other Sunday for years, 200 million people settled down to watch Nikolai Drozdov - a Russian David Attenborough - on Soviet television. So when this series celebrating the natural history of the former Soviet Union was planned, he was the obvious person to present it. And when it was screened herein 1992, 3.3 million British viewers agreed.
The largest country in the world, the USSR accounted for one sixth of our planet's land surf ace. And throughout this vast land roamed more than
100,000 brown bears - the symbol of Russia.
In Green Jewel of the Caspian, the first of six programmes,
Drozdov examines the wetland area of the Volga Delta, a paradise rich in birds - including sea eagles, pelicans and egrets -as well as sturgeons, producers of the famous caviar. Producer John Sparks
