The Russian Revolution in Colour poster


"Peace, Land, Bread" was the slogan of the Russian Revolution, but the idealistic social experiment was doomed from the start. In its first three years under Lenin's Bolshevik rule, millions were killed, and within a generation, nearly a third of the world's population lived under of the shadow of Communism. This two-part series examines this tumultuous political event, detailing its growth from a peaceful bread protest to full-blown social upheaval.

Aired - 29 March 2005

Episode summary:

In just a few short years, the ideals that inspired the Russian Revolution became distant memories, forgotten or ignored by Lenin and the Bolshevik Party. Instead, fear, paranoia, and violence became the new culture. The sailors of Kronshtadt registered a protest against Lenin, believing they were exercising their democratic duty. But in fact they were unknowingly plotting a collision course with the Red Army. It was to be the beginning of the end for the one-time heroes of the revolution.
