After the collapse of the USSR, the world stopped hearing so much about Russian writers. But that doesn't mean they stopped writing. This eye-opening film allows us to reconnect with what makes Russian literature so remarkable. With dramatic readings by Stephen Fry and award-winning original animations, the distinct worlds of some of Russia's most powerful imaginations are bought to life. Six contemporary Russian authors take us on a journey through the country's literature, its influences, its role in shaping social and political change and its relationship with power. This program showcases some of Russia's most remarkable modern talent with intimate personal encounters with Russia's most talented contemporary authors. In Moscow we march with the poet who leads many of the anti-Putin demonstrations, and we sit in the flat of the former scientist who only turned to writing after she fell afoul of the KGB in the 1970s. We meet the former Special Forces officer who writes touchingly of provincial life, but idolises Mickey Rourke, 50 Cent - and Stalin. We are taken by a master of chilling horror stories to the secret spot in Moscow's Gorky Park where the old Soviet-era rides of her childhood are being dismantled. Audiences will discover writers like the astounding Armenian writer, Ludmila Ulitskaya, who spent her entire adult life writing an 1000-page fantasy masterpiece. Lastly, the film treats audiences to an exclusive interview with Russia's most scandalous and violent literary novelist Vladimir Sorokin (critically acclaimed by the New York Review of Books) who compared the ruling Putin clique to the medieval torturers who served Ivan the Terrible. This program allows audiences to question not only what they thought they knew about Russian literature but also what they think they know about Russia. Each writer has their own surprising voice, often with more in common with Julian Barnes and Jonathan Franzen than Gogol or Tolstoy.

AN Wilson, author of a revelatory biography of CS Lewis, goes in search of the man behind Narnia. Bestselling children's author and world famous Christian writer CS Lewis spent his public life in the all-male world of Oxford colleges, but his private life was veiled in secrecy. Even his best friend JRR Tolkien didnt know of his marriage to an American divorcee late in life. Lewis died on the same day as the assassination of JF Kennedy and few were at his burial; his alcoholic brother was too drunk to tell people the time of the funeral. This new film explores the turning points of Lewis' life, the death of his mother, his relationship with his friends mother Mrs Moore, his religious conversion, the arrival and untimely death of his wife Joy Gresham. It is a moving and insightful psychological portrait of a man who experienced fame in the public arena but whose personal life was marked by the loss of three women he most loved.

This is the tragic story of a married aristocrat/socialite and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story starts when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother's unbridled womanizing - something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others. A bachelor, Vronsky is eager to marry her if she would agree to leave her husband Alexei Karenin, a government official, but she is vulnerable to the pressures of Russian social norms, her own insecurities, and Karenin's indecision. Although Vronsky and Anna go to Italy, where they can be together, they have trouble making friends. Back in Russia, she is shunned, becoming further isolated and anxious, while Vronsky pursues his social life. Despite Vronsky's reassurances, she grows increasingly possessive and paranoid about his imagined infidelity, fearing loss of control. Music by Rodion Shchedrin and choreography by Alexei Ratmansky.

The restoration of the English monarchy in 1660 marked the beginning of a new era not only for English society but also for English culture. In drama, art and music, the century following the accession of King Charles II was a magnificent age, and in poetry, the era produced some the country's greatest ever men of verse. Drawing on contemporary events for subject matter and the classical past for inspiration, John Dryden, Alexander Pope and Samuel Johnson defined the poetic spirit of the time.
