­We all know that life in the USSR was wrapped in social control. However it wasn’t all about the KGB and doom and gloom – Soviet music, traditional ice cream and Soviet sweet champanskoye are still adored by millions across Russia! On this week’s show Martyn Andrews goes back in time and explores cultural life in the USSR. He explores clothing designers that trade in on the famous hammer and sickle image and visits a themed bar in Moscow which offers their customers kitsch Soviet food and retro style parties.
