This project is intended to cover the major issues of the encoding/decoding conception and the reconstruction of Civil War and Revolution in modern Russian TV series. It is devoted to studying of the whole industry, to identifying the features of historical events in the TV series. TV shows as TV content act as a platform for relaying different interpretations of history that can be true, false, and can be absolutely not the history itself, but only to cover historical implications, bringing to the audience a slightly different angle on the events described with the help of particular images, ideas, meanings, objects. The showrunners: producers, directors, scriptwriters often create a film adaptation of historical events that has nothing in common with the accuracy. After examining the model of coding/decoding in modern Russian TV series, our work will prove that the producers, who are responsible for the show, encode messages containing very specific ideas about the period of Civil war and revolution.
