Terror! Robespierre and the French revolution

BBC2, 8PM, SATURDAY JULY 11

Combining archive, drama and documentary, this film examines the legacy of the French revolutionary Maximilien Robespierre. Drawing on original sources and interviews with Slavoj Žižek and Simon Schama, the revolutionary’s pursuit of virtue through political violence is connected to the gulag and the 20th-century concentration camp. Following the course of the New Republic’s second year in its “reign of terror”, the drama exposes the ideas that lay behind the politics of the time.
