Prime Planet: Russia with Simon Reeve
About the show
A hundred years after the Russian Revolution, Simon Reeve embarks on an extraordinary three-part journey across Russia. Setting out amongst the active, snow-capped volcanoes of Kamchatka, over 4,000 miles from Moscow, Simon explores one of the remotest regions of the country. The population of Russia's far east has fallen dramatically in recent years, but travelling by chopper and skidoo, Simon finds indigenous reindeer herders who are still eking out a fragile existence in this spectacular but inhospitable wilderness.
