Part 1 examines icon painting, the first Russian art form, and reveals the spiritual ideas that have animated Russia for 1000 years, and witnesses recent restorations of churches and monasteries from Kiev to the Kremlin. Part 2 examines Russian architecture from Eastern-inspired onion domes to Western-type palaces. Also looks at the work of Gogol who revealed the human suffering behind Russia's facade. His Dead Souls inspired 19th-century radicals and Soviet dissidents, and continues to influence Russian artists today.
