Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Robert Vas (3 March 1931, Budapest - 10 April 1978) was a Hungarian film director who settled in England. He came to England after the Hungarian uprising in 1956. He was committed to documentary and, after a short period working for the National Coal Board, he went on to make a seminal series of films for the BBC. These include The Golden Years of Alexander Korda (1968) and Heart of Britain (1970), The Issue Should be Avoided (1971), My Homeland (1976) and a three-hour examination of the life of Stalin (1973), as well as Nine Days in '26 (1974). He had planned to make films about the "Gulag Archipelago" and the wartime bombing of Dresden before his untimely death on 10 April 1978.
