CBS TV's "The Putin System" documentary
This documentary titled "The Putin System" is consistent with the books of Anna Politkovskaya books. The documentary starts with young Putin, his very first days in KGB and his rise to power, first in Petersburg then in Moscow and finally to the presidency.
The documentary gives the idea that Putin is a KGB guy loyal to the KGB system, he wants to rebuild the good old days of KGB system.
The 1.5 hour documentary has interesting Putin photos.
