Battleship Potemkin

Lack of time means that this is going to have to be more in the shape of one of Ralph's More Noted Things ... than a full-fledged blog-post, but I thought I'd point out that today (with a little Julian calendar fudging) is the 100th anniversary of the mutiny on the Battleship Potemkin, so famously - and it turns out, misleadingly - celebrated in Eisenstein's film of 1925. The Independent's Andrew Osborn is in Odessa to commemorate and explains why the Odessans don't care to join him.
