There's a new documentary about Nureyev's life - pre-defection - coming out on PBS (August 29) and BBC (Sept 29):

Quote:
The Nureyev Nobody Knows, Young and Wild

The NY Times
By MATTHEW GUREWITSCH
Published: August 26, 2007

A POINT comes in the afterlife of an artist when, for the time being, biography has pretty much done its work. The essential history is known; the ambience is broadly understood; the relationship between the life and the work has yielded its chief mysteries. Barring bombshells any future surprises are apt to be minor: not revelations, just minutiae...

...Even so, the prelude behind the Iron Curtain proves a mesmerizing subject. Between previously unknown film clips of the young Nureyev in full flight and fresh interviews with associates whose lives he touched or inadvertently destroyed, the material is of novelistic richness.

A BBC production in association with WNET in New York, “Nureyev: The Russian Years” receives its American premiere on the PBS series “Great Performances” on Wednesday. (Check local listings.) The BBC broadcast, with six extra minutes, follows on Sept. 29.

I watched this a couple of weeks ago. It was really great. Lots of old film footage. My husband finally realized what all the fuss was about.
