Russian I and II
Have you been watching Simon Reeve's trip across Russia? He is following a similar route to that taken by Joanna Lumley and meeting people in the same places, but how different are the interviews? I am completely fascinated by the sub title translations given in both programmes. When one considers that neither party speaks the other’s language the resulting conversation is quite remarkable. Well done the translators, perhaps watching a recording of the programmes will make an interesting session for our group.
