Summary The first episode of this three-part series on Joseph Stalin looks in detail at how the dictator managed to transform his real self into a legendary hero. Stalin had himself depicted in films, paintings and statues as a kind, dedicated man who doted on small children. The reality was different. The appearances with children were carefully staged, and as a father and husband he was lacking in time and compassion. In despair, his second wife committed suicide. His daughter, Svetlana, describes how her brother was absolutely terrified of their father. Other myths that Stalin perpetuated on film were that he was Lenin's appointed successor and right-hand man and the supreme mastermind behind the battles of the Second World War. History was simply rewritten on the big screen. (From Germany, in Russian and German, English subtitles) (Part 1)
