Sergey Sholokhov biography of telemeter
Sergei Leonidovich Sholokhov was born on September 271958. The training took place at the boarding school, where he studied including English and Hindi. After school from the second attempt I could enter the Philological Faculty of LMI (Leningrad Municipal Institute). His choice motivated by the fact that "since childhood he liked to read and the world of words is closer to him."

"
The first work on TV
In 1987 he made his debut as a junior editor in the cinema at the editorial office of the Leningrad Broadcasting Art Broadcasting Company, in programs
"Monitor", "300 meters of hope". After a while he became the creator of the program "5 wheel", and then its lead.
The program, initially focused onthe intelligentsia, quite unexpectedly gained immense popularity. The release consisted of news groups devoted to history, politics, literature, etc. The first issue was held in April 1988. The program was invited to a variety of politicians, including Boris Yeltsin. An unending stream was the transmission of political discussions.
1991 was marked by the disclosure of many cabinets withsecrets: the Leningrad Soviet took an exceptional decision at that time, and investigators for especially important cases of the Prosecutor General's Office T. Kh. Gdlyan and NV Ivanov began to appear on TV screens, covering the results of the corruption investigation in Central Asia and the highest echelons of power in the USSR.
From literary and artistic broadcasting was withdrawntaboo. TV viewers were able to enjoy previously banned performances, as well as works of disgraced authors. In the first issue of the program "5 wheel" was shown the play, in which Arkady Raikin took part.
"Lenin and Mushrooms"
The most memorable was the release of the program "5wheel "in 1991, which was invited by Sergei Kuryokhin. Together with Sergei Sholokhov they built an illusory logical chain proving to viewers that Lenin is a mushroom. He put forward the assumption that the leader used hallucinogenic mushrooms in large quantities, while he himself did not become them, the authors relied on pseudofakts and "arguments", citing various sources (right up to the reference to the work of Carlos Castaneda).
But since this program was released in 1991when the old chests with secrets were officially revealed from the TV screens, the audience did not immediately realize that there was an ordinary rally in the release. And if you take into account that the "scientific fiction" Sergei Sholokhov and his guest spoke with stone faces, and that such programs had not been allowed on Soviet television before, it becomes understandable why many believed in what was happening. Then the host and the guest, unable to stand it, began to laugh. Since then, the phrase "Lenin-mushroom" is walking among the people.
