Stalin's Return

John Sweeney meets a Stalin lookalike in Georgia

Joseph Stalin is back. Or is he?

Reporter John Sweeney travels more than 5,000 miles through the old Soviet Union from Stalin's birthplace in Georgia to a former labour camp in Russia, to find out whether one of the 20th Century's most notorious mass murderers is really being rehabilitated.

This World will be broadcast on Wednesday, 2 December, at 1900 GMT on BBC Two.

Or catch-up afterwards on BBC iPlayer (UK only).

Director/Producer: Roger Corke.

Executive Producers: Darren Kemp and Lucy Hetherington.
