4.1 Introduction

The heart is the engine of the human body – but what about it's specific function in athletes participating in sport?

What do we mean by an efficient heart? We mean one that pumps a lot of blood with every beat and that can beat quickly for a long period of time. An athlete's heart differ

War of The Century - Part 19
This part of the documentary begins with Stalin about to give a speech at the time he knew they were winning the war. You can hear the bell ringing to order everybody to stop clapping as nobody dared be the first to stop. There is also reference to German propaganda and the kind of media the German had access to.
