Fine TV-series that was hugely enjoyable 30 years ago
8 September 2005 | by jacobdijkstraSee all my reviews

I remember it as very exciting and strange, featuring a handsome hero with a secret mission in an old Russia threatened by Kozaks and frozen rivers, wearing woolly hats and serious faces. Recurring curious characters who were on the hero's side. All the while everybody is traveling to somewhere in Russia to do something of world-importance. As you may notice the details have eluded me. What's left are some images like described above, and a longing to see it again, slightly apprehensively because a re-acquaintance might prove disappointing.

The DVD of (part of) the series is currently only to be found in French with no subtitling on Ebay or
