The French Revolution – Part 1 – English subtitles (La Révolution française – Les Années Lumières)

An ambitious pan-European/Canadian production involving Germany, France, Britain, Canada, etc., spanning the most dramatic decades of the French revolution, from the convening of the Etats Generaux due to the munting national debt, to the years of turmoil and terror for royalists and revolutionists alike. Reputed by all critics to be highly accurate and fair to all political viewpoints. Definitely worth viddying at home, as the 2 parts span more than 5 hours, and could thus be regarded as a mini-series.

About a year ago, one of those exchanges was with Dr. Grover Furr, about the book he was publishing at the time, Yezhov vs. Stalin. I was intrigued, ordered and read the book and came away fascinated and feeling that for the first time in my life, a bright light shined on the history of the USSR and Russia, with Joseph Stalin front and center.
