This is a 2-part documentary on the Russian Revolution, first aired on the UK's Channel 5 in 2005. The first part centers around the mutiny of the Kronstadt sailors, which helped ignite the February 1917 revolution. Once Bolsheviks like Lenin and Trotsky entered the fray, the anti-war movement for democratic change took on a completely direction and flavor, so that the October 1917 revolution - 'The Bolshevik Revolution' - saw Russia's continued participation in the First World War, the devastation of once-prosperous Russia in the Russian Civil War, then the creation of the totalitarian Soviet Union.
