Stalin: Inside the Terror
The History Channel  |  March 30, 2021

An intimate portrait of one of the greatest monsters of the 20th century - to coincide with the 50th anniversary of his death in March 1953. Filmed extensively in Russia, this film reveals the life of a man who came to amass colossal power and exert malign influence over his country for more than 20 years. Stalin emerged as the true victor of World War II, having gained a vast Empire in the East. But victory over the Germans was not enough, and his attitude towards the West was fuelled by his growing paranoia. Access to a wealth of new material allows us to glimpse behind Stalin's granite mask into his extraordinary private world.
