Emperor Nicholas I Pavlovich started his 30-year rule with suppressing the Decembrist Revolt. On 14 December, 1825, the day of taking oaths by the new tsar, over a thousand people, including women and children, died. The revolt’s ringleaders were executed, the participants were sent to exile. Later, when Nicholas asked his son what he would have done if he had been the tsar, the young Alexander answered: “I would forgive”. Alexander II Nikolayevich went down in history as liberator. He succeeded in doing the thing that none of his predecessor was able to: he abolished serfdom.

The most vivid pages of Russian history and the establishment and consolidation of Russian state power are associated with the eighteen Russian Tsars of the House of Romanov which include such historic names as Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Nicholas I and Alexanders I, II and III. The dynasty ended with the brutal assassination of the last Tsar, Nicholas II and his family by the Bolsheviks in Ekaterinburg in 1917.

The Romanov dynasty played a hugely important role in world history, and the series highlights the life stories and characters of the tsars, recounting their rise to power and their contribution to the dynasty, their merits and their faults, their achievements and mistakes, their victories and defeats in war.

The series also examines the Russian form of 'Caesarism' as a system of state administration - its advantages and drawbacks and how the Russian state changed under the Romanov's rule.

THE ROMANOVS is told in eight epic one-hour episodes using a unique combination of magnificent CGI animation and dramatic reconstruction with careful and accurate attention paid to each period.
