Five drops the risqué for Russian

Five are, apparently, going to show a forty-five minute programme in prime time exploring the origins of communism. Narrated in Russian. Where on Earth does that fit into the three F’s?

For a moment, I thought that they might actually be trying to dumb-up their TV programmes. Then I realised that this was the first in a series of six, clearly designed for nothing more than publicity purposes. With reference to a programme later in the series, the producer said

The producer had to explain to Germaine Greer that the viewers did not necessarily know what a misogynist is.

Is it possible to do anything other than smile at Five’s attempts to become respectable?
