I just got this video: Poslednie Pyat' Let
(literally, "The Last Five Years," though in English they call it Fall of the Tsars
) sent from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It's done by the same folks that produced Nikolai i Aleksandra
, which I love. After seeing just 10 minutes, I was hooked! Full of film
footage, from the war years in particular, I've not seen before. My favorites so far are the clips of Nicholas II with Nikolai Nikolaevich -- you can see exactly how enormous
the Grand Duke was compared to the Tsar. (I've been suspicious that the still photos of the two have been doctored to mask the Tsar's much smaller stature -- now I'm convinced!) It also includes a rather icky clip of Stolypin in his casket
I heartily recommend it! The narration is all in Russian -- NO subtitles -- but there's enough new visuals to keep even non-Russian speakers very happy.
