With unprecedented access to the bare-chested macho man and tiger hunter, the Putin Interviews gazes approvingly on the manufacturing of a modern tsar
Why does he do it? Why does Vladimir Putin cavort bare-chested on a horse, have himself filmed hunting a Siberian tiger, dive for ancient (pre-positioned) artefacts, allow publication of a Putin pin-up calendar or still, in his 60s, have himself filmed skiing and playing ice-hockey?
There is a lot to be said for encouraging someone to give a direct account of themselves to a camera, especially someone who enjoys such international prominence and inspires such conflicting responses as Putin.
