Witnesses of the Hour X: LTV premieres documentary on August coup 1991

On the night of August 18, 1991, a coup or putsch was attempted in Moscow. Latvian Television has produced a documentary, now complete with English subtitles, unraveling the events of the days surrounding the coup in Moscow and in Latvia.

The attempted coup in Moscow thirty years ago threatened to return the Baltic States to the dark times of the occupation by the Soviet Union. What happened in Latvia in the meantime? The documentary 'Witnesses of the Hour X. August Coup 1991' premiered on LTV August 19 and as of August 23 is also available for the English-speaking audience.
