To commemorate the centenary of the Russian Revolution a number of eminent historians and retired senior officers of the former KGB's State Archive have come together to create a new and completely unbiased portrait of history's most famous revolutionary leader, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (aka Lenin).

The producers of this ambitious documentary series have been given unbridled access to a wealth of secret and hitherto unknown declassified documents as well as unique film and photographic materials, most of which were not made public until 2015.

Based on this unique collection of secret documents and memoirs, the series shows, for the first time, the real Lenin, revealing a man very different from the character we have come to know from the history books.
