Storyville “Gorbachev. Heaven” 13 September 2022: Tuesday on BBC Four
|Storyville Tonight, September 2022 & This Week’s Episode|
Mikhail Gorbachev helped to shape the 20th century. As the architect of Glasnost and Perestroika, his actions brought down the Berlin Wall, giving countries of the former Soviet Union a chance to break away and be free. But while to many in the west he remains a hero, in his own country Gorbachev is condemned for destroying the Soviet Empire.
This film is an intimate portrait of the man, now 91 years old and living alone in an empty house outside Moscow, carrying the burdens of his past.
