Synopsis

An eight-hour, four-part miniseries based on Robert K. Massie's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of the Russian Czar who opened his sprawling empire to the West. The action begins in the late seventeenth century when the young Peter is named co-czar with his brother, Ivan. Court intrigue involving his half-sister, Sophia, is overcome by Peter and his supporters, and the young man consolidates his power as sole regent. Peter journeys to the West and is inspired to westernize Russia, but must combat constant conspiracy at home.
