"Highly Recommended. This compelling and unexpectedly moving documentary unfolds like a classic detective story as it sorts through the facts to discover what happened to Tsar Nicholas II and his family, and why. The program is given added depth by the use of factual documents, among them eyewitness accounts that were kept buried by the KGB; it blends footage of Nicholas and his family, historically accurate re-enactments, and a lively mix of experts." - Andrea Chase, Movie Magazine Intl.
"Highly Recommended. This documentary effectively examines controversies surrounding the death of Tsar Nicholas II and his family during the Bolshevik uprising in July, 1918." -Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
This highly acclaimed documentary uncovers the mystery that has surrounded the fate of Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia, since he and his family's tragic disappearance on July 16, 1918. The Oscar winning feature film, Nicholas and Alexandra, raised awareness of the Romanov family worldwide, still many questions remained unanswered. Now, thanks to forensic experts who examined the Imperial family's skeletal remains, as well as notes by Yakov Yurovsky, who led the execution squad, which were obtained from official archivists, this program puts to rest the story behind the most brutal regicide in history. Here, we discover the factual story of events, including truths about Grigori Rasputin, Vladimir Lenin, and Anna Anderson, who claimed to be the Tsar's youngest daughter, Anastasia. Produced by Cymru Films, Inc. 05/10DE JSCA 52 min.
Note: An unedited version, Mystery of the Last Tsar (Nicholas II), is available.
