It proves a tremendous potential to further deliver excellent ratings in Greece, as well as across the globe.”
Αlexandros Kanter Bax, director general of ERT3, said: “We are excited about the acquisition of this beautiful series, which has already received glowing reviews and is hitting strong ratings.

We hope that the Greek audience will appreciate the atmosphere of the Russian revolution which marked the turning point in the country’s history.”
