Help me track down a USSR dish & "Generique" (ident music) ...

The TELECOM DISH lattice work looks straight out of the Victorian Era
-- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-vXJFiqarU
-- Where in the USSR is this, and who built it?
-- Does it still work or has it been recycled?


The "Generique" (ident music)
-- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlC5r87t81s
-- Years applicable : 1972, 1987 (wow), 1994.
-- Someone in the USSR must have composed it, but it is not played in the West.

The longer video appears to be a montage of the opening graphics and theme music for the 9 O'clock News. Probably Moscow State Television.

The "Dish" (also shown in the longer "Generique" video) looks like a stylized graphic of a radio telescope or radar antenna, not a real one.

The runtime of the dish in question is at 0:54s.

The dish seems to be real...
