Geologist and hereditary Cossack

Straightforward and even harsh in nature — not only in life but in art that Govorukhin simultaneously praised and criticized, he may have inherited from his father. Together with the Cossack love of freedom.

He was born in 1936 in the Urals. His father, Sergey Georgiyevich, was a hereditary don Cossack. However, the Stanislav’s father almost did not know — he and his mother separated before his birth, and in 1938 he is sent to camp in the framework of the Directive “decossackization” and disappeared somewhere in Siberia. Govorukhin and his sister, Inessa’s mother, a dressmaker, was raised alone.

In 1958, 22-year-old Stanislav Govorukhin graduated from Kazan state University with not only popular but fashionable in the early 1960s, the profession of geologist.

However, for it to work it did not.

In 1959, the future Director went to the Kazan TV Studio, one of the first in the country. After working there for several years editor and assistant Govorukhin went to Moscow, where he enrolled in the University. In the late 1960s he graduated with honors from his studies and received the diploma of the Director.
