While the video had the basic facts in place (although there was no mention of Trotsky), I felt it was nonetheless biased against Lenin. Several scholars featured seemed very conservative in their appraisal of him, and to be honest it felt like this video was a cold war product with some ideological ax to grind. I'm a Social Studies teacher and showed this to my 7th graders. They're not at the point yet where they can judge bias too well themselves, so I want to show them material that's relatively neutral. For heavens sake, Communism died 20 years ago; do we really need to be demonizing Lenin anymore? Isn't it time to move on and let scholars do their jobs? I've felt a similar conservative bias in other programs from the 'Biography' series.
