Extraordinarily revealing and authoritative
9 February 2012 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I am amazed at the number of 1 votes for this excellent program. Maybe not enough "hotties" in it? Or people who thought it might be another reality program?

This program is not entertainment but extremely informative (and nevertheless entertaining) for those of us who care about the world we live in and what is going on in it that might affect us. I might well have skipped it myself in favour of Borgen or some such light entertainment but I am glad I didn't. The number of highly placed officials who give their views is extraordinary; apart from the presidents themselves it seems everyone close to them was interviewed and gave their thoughts on each other's actions and plans. No doubt their comments were given in a self-justificatory spirit as some slight inconsistencies showed but it was still remarkably candid. I learned a lot I feel, about that rather enigmatic neighbour of Europe's, Russia, and was left feeling more sympathetic towards all the countries and their politicians mentioned.

I have seen this described as Western propaganda but I have to say I found myself sympathising more and more with the Russians who find themselves trying to convert an almost 19th century feudal system into a 21st century capitalist democracy.
