Simon Reeve embarks on an epic three-part journey across the largest country in the world in search of the real Russia. One hundred years after the Russian Revolution, Simon travels through this land of extremes to investigate what the next century might bring for the powerful Russian Federation and its relationship with the rest of the world. Simon uses his trademark insight and warm manner to get to the heart of a nation that’s more often viewed through the bleak prism of cold war hostility. He meets an extraordinary range of characters while unlocking the beauty and variety of this vast country. Setting out amongst the active, snow-capped volcanoes of Kamchatka, over 6,000 kilometres from Moscow, Simon explores one of the remotest regions of the country. The population of Russia's Far East has fallen dramatically in recent years, but travelling by chopper and skidoo, Simon finds indigenous reindeer herders who are still eking out a fragile existence in this spectacular but inhospitable wilderness.
