Trial access to TV Rain Digital Archive

By Sarah Gilmore, on 10 March 2022

UCL has trial access to TV Rain Digital Archive until 27th March 2022. To access off-site please use Desktop@UCL Anywhere .

TV Rain is Russia’s only independent television channel and conducts investigations, airs reports, hosts interviews, and gives a platform for real, lively debates unlike anything else seen on Russian TV channels. TV Rain has managed to avoid censorship, providing a forum for those opposition leaders denied access to pro-government mass media, as well as offering independent views on current events in Russia and the world and covering sensitive political topics like Crimea, Donbass in East Ukraine, Islamic State and more. Besides the news, TVRain also covers music and movies, travel, social projects, lectures and round table discussions.
