MrHarrington's Washing The latest assignment for Somerset Maugham's semi-autobiographical First World War playwright-spy mirrors the author's own espionage activities in Russia in 1917. On the eve of the Revolution, Ashenden - like Maugham himself - is sent to
Petrograd with funds to prop up the shaky Kerensky government and keep Russia on the side of the Allies. On the Trans-Siberian Express he meets an obsessive American businessman who may provide a useful cover, though they will both need the help of their
Russian guide to steer them through the chaos and violence of the Bolshevik uprising.

Series exploring issues of conflict, ethics and belief. The Peoples' Opium? After 70 years of the suppression of Christian faith in Russia, people are turning to a bizarre blend of the traditional and the trendy. The Russian Orthodox Church vies with astrology and New Age teaching for the attention of the devout, the disillusioned and the desperate. In Shelkovo, a small community outside
Moscow, Everyman asks why faith is in fashion.
