We scored our copy of the 3 volume Thames Stalin from Films Inc.:

Stalin / a co-production of Thames Television and WGBH Boston.
Chicago, IL : Films Incorporated, 1990.
Description: 3 videocassettes (ca. 180 min.) : sd., col. ; 1/2 in.
Series: Stalin series.
Orginally televised on PBS stations, May-June, 1990.
Title on cassette label: Stalin series.
Co-released with the book: Stalin, a Time for Judgement, by
Jonathan Lewis and Phillip Whitehead.

which means, of course, unless someone else has picked this up (and I
don't think they have), it be gone for good... Films for the Humanities
( has a couple of decent titles re Stalin; you might
scope it out.
