BBC Russian Language and People


Do you remember the BBC tv Russian Language and People course back in 1980? I was delighted to find the Goodbye Summer  drama that featured in it serialised at a Russian YouTube channel. The theme music has stuck in my mind for decades and it was a delight to hear the soulful piece again, as well as trying to learn some Russian: http://www.youtube.com/user/Only4Russian
There is also a whole website dedicated to the programme at: http://media.humnet.ucla.edu/depts/slavic/goodbyesummer/ 

The photo above is a still from the opening episode of Goodbye Summer, where Victor the taxi driver drives Olga to Moscow University.
