In television's first comprehensive journey through the vast and varied landscapes of Russia, the resourceful Jonathan Dimbleby makes an epic journey from one end to the other, killing cliches and revelling in the unpredictable. Across nine time zones and through all extremes of weather, he seeks out the people of this strange and extraordinary land. From the Arctic Circle where the summer sun never sets to the subzero wastes of Siberia, from white witches to hirsute masseurs, from oil wells to shamans, Dimbleby's journey by boat, train, truck and foot is heart-warming, entertaining and compelling. From outside, Russia is both forbidding and enticing. Inside it becomes an exhilarating adventure.

“If you want to understand a russian's soul, visit his toilet". Even then it can be hard to understand. I think the series is quite omformative and comprehensive with all the limitation you meet in a country with so many diversities. Russia has always been and will always be a "different plase". Your series shows some of that, but Russia is more complex than so.”

“Last series were disappointing though... I am afraid the presenter was too tired after a very long journey and may be a bit annoyed by this and it's a strange to him country... As I understand, it is his 1st journey to Russia, and he does not know the language. The idea seems to be to prove that Russia stays wild, alcoholic, and goes backwards from democracy. Well, at least he tried... Some scenes are still worth a look, but to cite Anna Karenina in a film dealing with politics... This country is too big to jump to conclusions after a brief encounter with people leaving along the highways and railways... I don't know, honestly - very mixed feelings :)”
“Wonderful, informative, educational”
