About the Show
When Stalin's death from a brain haemorrhage was announced in March 1953, the true details surrounding his demise were immediately suppressed. The Soviet Communist Party's power would crumble if foul play was suspected. Acclaimed historian Simon Sebag Montefiore plays detective, travelling to Moscow to investigate. For the first time, the contents of secret KGB files are examined and the official version of Stalin's death is denounced as lies, while interviews with witnesses and experts present an array of motives and suspects.
