Seizoen 1 - Aflevering 3 - The Road to Revolution
The historian examines the period between 1825 and 1918, in which four successive tsars faced a Russian society moving rapidly toward revolution. Lucy discovers how the `Tsar-Liberator" Alexander II tried to free millions of serfs from slavery and examines the rise of radical writers and thinkers who sought to have a voice. She also uncovers the family life of the last tsar, Nicholas II, including the influence of Rasputin and questions whether the killing of the ruler and his family could have been avoided.
