    We do have some buildings with shared heating and hot water. I lived in a Lewisham council flat that had central hot air and water. I suspect the place was originally purpose built for pensioners and I just got lucky...

    You made me look at askhistorians. It looks as if Bullock's book is slightly out of date. You know what historians are like. Key quote that touches on why- "[W]hat has changed in Soviet historiography would be how we understand...

    @744- Are you sure Netflix doesn't have the subbed version hidden? They default to annoyingly dubbed because they've a/b tested and get higher viewer retention with the dubbed versions, but the original is usually there somewhere. More detail in this...
