Empire of the Tsars

Have you been watching BBC 4’s Empire of the Tsars? Presented by Lucy Worsley, the three hour-long episodes tell the story of the Romanov family from start to finish and show many sumptuously-shot scenes in the palaces and galleries of St Petersburg. Practically everything mentioned turns up in one or other of our 17 episodes on St Petersburg. Definitely to be recommended, but the final episode goes out this Tuesday, so you’ll need to be quick on iPlayer. It has previously been listed on Netflix too, so worth keeping an eye out there too.
