Three programmes about the end of the Soviet Union as we know it.

2: Don't Cut the Lifeline The Soviet nightmare could deepen even more if the Ukraine, the industrial powerhouse and breadbasket of the Soviet Union, follows the Baltic republics down the separatist road and the coalminers of the Donbas go on a prolonged strike. Gordon Clough reports from Kiev and the Donietsk, where coal is king, on the trends which could destroy the Union. Producer Anne Koch
