Episode 356 of 536 episodes

A special program on one of the most astonishingly successful and influential families in human history: the Romanovs of Russia. The rise and fall of the Romanovs was, in the words of author Simon Sebag Montefiore, “...blood spattered, gold-plated, diamond-studded, swash buckled, bodice ripping and star-crossed...it is relevant, and human as it is strategic, a chronicle of fathers and sons, megalomaniacs, monsters and saints.”
