Red October (Russian revolution) [02:52]
I've compiled some clips and pictures with some music all from the Russian revolution. Enjoy :) here are the lyrics to the song... Arise, beloved country! Arise, for mortal fight With Fascist hordes despicable, The forces of the night. Let waves of righteous fury Swell up as ne'er before And spur us to the victory of Our sacred people's war. (x 2) Give chase to those who'd conquer us Oppressive tyrants all, Who'd crush great flame ideas, Who'd cast us into thrall. Their black wings we will never let Fly over our motherland, Nor ever shall her precious fields Fall to a hostile band. These dirty rotten Fascist pigs We'll shoot between the eyes. The garbage of humanity Is headed for demise.

Goodbye Leningrad - Welcome back St Petersburg - ROGER GEORGE CLARK photos [12:58]
In the 1980s and early 90s the English broadcaster, ROGER GEORGE CLARK, visited Leningrad/St Petersburg many times. He took thousands of photos and recorded the fall of Communism. These are just a tiny selection from of his record of the city. 'I went to Leningrad to see what remained of the city of the tsars, not to study Communism,' he says. 'I was astonished at how much had survived and how beautiful the city looked. 'The Russians seldom looked cool. But they had elegance and style - if you knew where to look. I looked for it. That elegance and style rarely took its inspiration from Communism. Has anyone ever looked less stylish than Lenin and the Bolsheviks? No, the Russians in St Petersburg looked backwards to pre-revolutionary times. Despite the Communists and the destruction wrought during the 900-day siege during the Second World War the great buildings from the days of the tsars were still there - huge palaces from a bygone age - beautifully restored and preserved. As for clothes ... You could see people striding round the city in Tsarist uniforms. There was even a Lenin look-alike who looked more handsome than the original, was better dressed and less lethal. 'People in St Petersburg had class. The naval and military cadets behaved like public school boys. They were part of an elite and knew it. 'But this was the time when Communism fell apart and the Soviet Union collapsed - the age of glasnost (openness) and perestroika (reform) - the age of the last Soviet ...
