“On 11 August 1973, a TV series was premiered throughout the Soviet Union that stopped the people in their tracks. Seventeen Moments of Spring was broadcast at 7.30pm over 12 consecutive nights, and this black-and-white second world war spy drama amassed an astonishing 50 to 80 million viewers per episode…”
Huge thanks to Andrew Male over at the Guardian for the thoughtful, intelligent piece on our ’17 Moments of Spring’ release and beyond. We’ll be at Pushkin House with co-conspirators Antique Beat, Tariverdieva Veraand Douglas Dare on the 22nd & 23rd of the month to celebrate this extraordinary series, and of course the music that Mikael Tariverdiev scored to complement it.
