BBC Documentaries Dictatorland

BBC Documentaries Dictatorland

Corruption, murder and bizarre personal shrines – in some countries, the age of the dictatorship is as strong as ever. Dictatorland follows presenter Ben Zand as he travels to Eastern Europe and Central Asia to find out about the world’s most eccentric, brutal and outrageous dictators and learn the secrets of their success. Discover the strange stories of Tajikistan’s Instagram warlord, Kazakhstan’s ludicrously expensive new capital and Belarus’s ‘spring of eternal manliness’, as well as the chilling realities of living under such harsh and undemocratic regimes.
