Summary Documents the story of perestroika in the Soviet Union, a story of a giant stirring, lumbering, and threatening to fall. These programs look at the survivors of the Armenian earthquake and Chernobyl and chronicle the Soviet Union's faltering steps toward political pluralism. There are interviews with Soviet non-conformists and an examination of the infamous Soviet bureaucracy.
