About this programme

2/2. The conclusion of the two-part documentary charting the events following Lenin's rise to power, as the anticipated communist society was superseded by totalitarianism. After an attempt on his life, Lenin instituted a severe crackdown on political opponents and the bourgeoisie that inspired opposition from a number of factions and led to the assassination of the royal family.
