Russia’s second city gives up its secrets in RTD’s St. Petersburg documentaries

Steeped in history, St. Petersburg is home to some of the greatest treasures in Russia. Many are housed in the Hermitage Museum. In the documentary Secret Hermitage Helpers, we go behind the scenes to meet the people who keep the museum running like clockwork, conserving the artefacts and making sure visitors have a good time. The horrors of the siege during WWII are still in living memory, and the documentary Leningrad Siege Reflections brings the realities to life from those who survived.
