Russian Revolution Documentary

Here's an excellent documentary about the Russian Revolution that I found on School Tube. It's in three 9 minute parts.  I can't figure out who made the documentary but it's good, engaging, and relatively short.

In the first nine minutes, the documentary outlines the causes of the revolution reviewing the plight of the peasants and workers and the abdication of the tsar.

In the second part, Lenin arrives in Moscow on a sealed train car from Switzerland. He outlines his Marxist ideals and wrote down his vision for a socialist country in a paper called the April Thesis, which called for power to the Soviets and an end to the "imperialist war."

In the third part, Lenin overthrows the Provisional Government and gets Russia out of World War I.
