Yet Another Treat for Russophiles
14th January 2016
To add to the list of programmes posted earlier, Start the Week on BBC R4 on Monday 11 January is ‘Russia: Tsars to Putin’. Guest speakers include Simon Seebag Montefiore and Amanda Vickery. Interestingly, Vickery talks a little about the moral dilemma she faced in interviewing some of the survivors of the traumatic events of the Leningrad siege for a programme that is essentially a source of entertainment for its audience.
