Its Rise and Fall
Three programmes by Isaac Deutscher
It is four years since, on March 5, 1953, Joseph Stalin died. Ever since then the people of the Soviet Union have been living under the sign of de-Stalinisation.
De-Stalinisation epitomises a clash between the Stalin myth which dominated the life of the Soviet Union for a quarter of a century and the nation's desire to free itself from the myth.
Tonight the birth and growth of the Stalin myth is traced.
