      • Narrator: On August 25th 1530 a violent storm blew over Moscow. It marked a royal birth, the birth of the next Grand Prince. The infant would come to be known in his lifetime as Ivan the Terrible. The fifty years of his reign would scar Russia and set the course of its history. He was intelligent and ruthless, he believed he was on a divine mission, he had little time for mercy and an appetite for cruelty. But the power of his will transformed Russia, pushing back its borders and crushed its enemies and built an empire. His cathedrals showed his desire to make Moscow the new Jerusalem and his trading networks turned the city from a backwater to a center of international business. And yet all the while suspicion drove Ivan to create a private domain ruled by secret police and terror. Now our investigators go in search of this extraordinary, paranoid world, the world of the first man to call himself Tsar.
