    Petersburg - Travel Video . Explore elegant St. Petersburg, built in the early 18th Century as Russia's proud new capital. Conceived by Tsar Peter the Great as a grandiose version of Amsterdam. The architecture of St. Petersburg reflects a range of European influences. Its beautiful palaces and quiet elegance belie its troubled history yet, as you explore the city, you'll find clues to the political turmoil that give St. Petersburg its haunting character. 30 minutes Hello Arthur, Thank you for sending the new St. Petersburg video which arrived Friday. We viewed it last evening and were absolutely delighted with this new addition to our video library. Some of the footage was shot from a plane so one viewing it really is able to see these gorgeous palaces and landmarks from the best perspective. Other footage took us right into the palaces and up close so that we felt that we were right there marveling at the beauty once again. The narration is wonderful and the coloring and quality is first rate. We highly recommend it! Thank you for your efforts to help us remember our trip in such a perfect manner. Robin

    DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places Our tour of Russia starts in St. Petersburg, including churches and palaces, and, above all, the River Neva, on the banks of which Peter the Great's city stands. We visit Tchaikovsky's house at Klin, near Moscow, and travel south to Ukraine to see Sebastopol in the Crimea and Odessa. Finally we return to St. Petersburg, seeing the surrounding countryside, the city by night, the bridges and the people. The Mustic Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky succeeded in uniting strands of Russian musical nationalism with music in the cosmopolitan forms of his training. He spent his childhood and adolescence in St. Petersburg, later moving to Moscow and finally finding some refuge in the country at Klin, where his house is preserved. The music accompanying our tour is Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto and his Serenade for Strings.

    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. In 1703, Tsar Peter the Great founded St. Petersburg in the swampy delta mouth of the Newa. It became Russia's capital city and remained so until 1918 when Lenin and his revolutionary Bolshevik government moved to Moscow. Today it is a living monument to the lives and times of Russia's Imperial Tsars The Winter Palace contains Russia's largest museum, the Eremitage, which houses more than two and a half million exhibits. Since Peter the Great, Russian rulers purchased many major works of art, but it was Catherine The Great who acquired complete collections from the auction houses of Europe. The Admiralty, with its needle-shaped, gold-plated tower, is one of the city's most famous landmarks, its grand architecture depicting the emergence of Russia as a naval power and the marvellous Isaaks Cathedral has the third largest dome in the world. Twenty four thousand tree stumps were used for its foundations and it can accommodate a congregation of 14,000. The Peter And Paul Cathedral was the burial place of the Tsars and it contains the marble coffin of Peter the Great. The most colourful church in Russia is the Resurrection Of Christ Cathedral which was built on the orders of Tsar Alexander the Third on land where, in 1881, his father, Alexander the Second, had been killed by a bomb planted by a revolutionary group. Russian Baroque and Russian Classicism were established in St. Petersburg - city of monumental events, outstanding architecture and an Imperial metropolis on the grand scale.

    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Located Outside St. Petersburg, Peterhof is the name of the majestic palace that was once the summer residence of the Russian Tsar's. Whether public galleries or private quarters, everywhere there is a superb array of many objets d'art and splendid interior architecture. The central point of the Peterhof's 21 hectare upper park is a replica of Nurnberg`s glorious Neptune Fountain, which is both an architectural and horticultural work of art. Tsar Peter The Great gathered together an army of soldiers, serfs and servants to dig the ditches and canals that would serve the gardens and their gigantic water features. The glittering design of the lower park leaves no doubt that the Peterhof was a powerful symbol of the new sea lords who ruled over Russia.

    DVD. ABCD. 50 Minutes The "Golden Ring," that is what the Russian public calls the magical ring of towns stretching northeast from Moscow. Rostov Veliky, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Suzdal and Sergiyev Posad are places you'll see in this cultural- historical documentary offering encounters with art relics that were left by ancient artists and handy craftsmen behind the high ramparts and guard towers of orthodox churches and massive walls of fascinating cathedrals. Major trade centers were being raised under the protection of the monasteries, and these were protected by fortification systems of several connected monasteries.In its all-embracing arms, they've enclosed the market as well as craftsmen and residential quarters.The safer the ramparts were, the more significant the center became. The quieter the inner life, the more of an attraction it was for artists residing in endangered parts of the empire. Borodino and Abramtsevo, the introductory and also final chapter of the documentary connects the past to recent history. The rebuilt Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow, well that's the immediate present.

    National Geographic. Go behind the scenes at Moscow's Circus School and experience the magic and wonder of the performances that delight millions. See lion tamers risk life and limb, trapeze artists glide through the air, and, of course, the beloved clowns who inspire imagination and fantasy, with laughter as their language. In the late 1980s, National Geographic used its considerable clout to slip behind the scenes at the venerable Soviet Circus, whose performances have been treated in their home country as an art form on par with the symphonies of Tchaikovsky or the plays of Chekhov. The resulting video is a documentary delight. We are treated to scenes of "classwork," the elite school that aspiring performers must attend, where they are taught a complement of ballet, acrobatics, rope-walking, and clowning. Their graduation ceremony is a spectacular performance in front of a full audience. We also meet some of the singular individual performers: the legendary clown Popov, who says Chaplin inspired his sweet simpleton persona, and who continues to be a juggling and slack-wire master more than 40 years into his career; a big-cat trainer who decides to allow his eager 9-year-old son into the ring for the first time to learn his father's skills; and the acrobatic troupe the Cranes, whose three-dimensional trapeze work evokes the birds of their name--and whose grace seems on par with nothing short of the Bolshoi. 60 minutes

    National Geographic. Enter the World of the doomed Romanovs. It is a fairy tale and a horror story all at once, and remembering it was all but forbidden...until now. The fabled Romanovs, led by handsome Nicholas II and the devout Empress Alexandra, ruled imperial Russia in high splendor, despite the disintegration of their divided, war-torn country. In 1918, the rise of communism violently collided with the rule of royalty when the tsar, his beloved wife, and their children were murdered and buried in a secret grave. In the new Soviet Union, history was rewritten and the gilded trappings of the Romanovs erased. National Geographic has done its usual highly professional job with this visual account of Czar Nicholas II and his czarina, Alexandra. It features a good deal of interesting newsreel footage of the epoch and a lot of affecting snapshots of their family. Many of the candid snapshots were taken by the czar himself or his daughter, Anastasia. The narration, by the distinguished British actor Jeremy Irons, is quietly effective, although somewhat melancholy in tone. The story of the brutal murder of the imperial family by a Bolshevik firing squad in Ekaterinburg is appropriately shocking. Although the film devotes considerable attention to the controversial identification of the family's remains, it was made in 1995 so it naturally doesn't extend to their eventual burial back in St. Petersburg. 60 minutes

    National Geographic. Blake's words "Tyger, tyger burning bright" come alive in this lush documentary from National Geographic. Tigers of the Snow spotlights the Siberian Tiger, which once roamed over the wide ranges of northern Asia but now is limited to a tiny region on the Sea of Japan. Footage of their active muscles, their piercing eyes, their regal pelt, all attest to the beauty of a dying breed. Venture into the dense forests of coastal Siberia to track the biggest cat on earth, the elusive Siberian Tiger. You'll join a team of Russian and American scientists who are risking their lives to save this highly endangered and highly dangerous creature. Some 300 Siberian tigers survive in the wild, concentrated in a shrinking habitat and under siege from poachers. Against incredible odds, this daring band of wildlife biologists is determined to help the Siberian tiger fight back. Watch as researchers hastily enter a den to tag a two-month-old cub before the mother tiger returns. A female tiger charges up a tree, attempting to attack a hovering helicopter. Team members race to revive a sedated tiger, even giving it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. There are plenty of daring adventures in this bold rescue effort. 60 minutes
