Berija and Co.
Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  October 9, 2020

By August 1949, five years earlier than expected, the USSR has become the world's second superpower. But by March 1953, Stalin is dead and KGB chief, Beria, is executed later the same year. Nikita Kruschev tries to reduce the power of the security service, splitting it into several sections. But it doesn't last. Soon, the KGB is back. Abroad, it has struck gold - a mole at the very top of the CIA.
