Themes from the 70s 2: The Last Empire
In a post colonial world, the Soviet Bloc in Eastern Europe is, in a sense, the last empire. But during the last decade, Moscow has found itself under pressure from within the confines of its dominion, as economic realities and forces of nationalism have increased the pull away from the centre. At the same time, the Soviet leadership has continued to be haunted by the fear of encirclement from the outside, Erik de Mauny presents a programme which, against this background, examines the viability of the last empire in the 80s.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
