Putin’s Palace

1 x 60'

UK Premiere 9pm 11th May 2006 on BBC Two

Twenty years after documentary maker Richard Denton first went to Russia, he returns to film inside the Kremlin as Putin nears the end of his controversial Presidency.

From the urbane spin doctor, Dimitri, all the way down to Konstantin, a soldier in the Presidential Regiment, Denton meets the people who work for the President at a time when there are scandals inside the Russian army. British diplomats are accused of spying and Putin himself prepares for the biggest press conference in history. Meanwhile Russians are beginning to ask the question: after Putin, who will be the next President of Russia?
