Garri Urban died on October 16th 2004, before the story of his life could be seen on film. Read the full report in The Times.

He had spent many years researching his past with his son, revisited the scenes of his imprisonment and the two had uncovered secret KGB files which still had Garri listed as a dangerous spy..... yet it wasn't his battle for survival under the Soviet regime that was at the centre of obituaries published in The Times, The Guardian and the British Medical Journal, but the fact that he went on to practice medicine in a way that promoted universal care for all citizens regardless of race, religion, nationality or social status.
