Cosmos Patrol: Star Trek for Communists
In the late 60s, the Soviets copied the TV show Star Trek
and used it as propaganda and entertainment. Set in the 23rd Century, the 400 galaxy-exploring crewmembers are led by a handsome Commander with a coldly logical First Officer. Ensign Chekhov assists as they encounter alien life forms and embrace them as brothers.

Live Russian TV
Interesting even though I don't know what they're saying. Rumor has it that you can also see some live
Olympics action there too

TV out in Moscow, due to fire in landmark tower.
So, am I just too much of an old Cold Warrior, or is anyone else a bit twitchily nervous that after the TV press hammered Russian President Vladimir Putin over his handling of the Kursk
disaster, now the TV just happens
to be knocked out? Oh, and that Putin is saying how this incident shows that the whole economy needs more "security"? Hmm...
