The Russian Newspaper Murders – July 6th

25th June 2004

Dear all,
On July 6th at 9:30 and 00:30 BBC4 are showing the documentary:
“The Russian Newspaper Murders” – In the industrial city of
Togliatti, where two editors-in-chief have been murdered in less
than two years, this film reports on the risks that journalists
run in the tangled web of wealth, power and politics that
defines modern Russia. In 2002, Valery Ivanov, editor in chief
of the Togliatti Observer, the city’s only independent
newspaper, was shot to death after reporting on local
corruption. Eighteen months later, Alexei Sidorov, Ivanov’s
successor at the newspaper, was stabbed to death.
Dir. Paul Jenkins
With best wishes
Anna
