Abstract

Jan Čulík interviews Professor Martin Štoll, a documentarist film maker, film theoretician and historian of television about his new book Television and Totalitarianism in Czechoslovakia (Bloomsbury Publishers, New York), detailing the history of the attempts to start TV broadcasting in Czechoslovakia. These date back to the 1920s and are associated with the beginning of radio broadcasting in Czechoslovakia in 1923. TV broadcasting was eventually started in the post-Stalinist period in 1953. Remarkably, for the first few years, the communist regime did not regard television as important and most of its staff were non-communist. When the regime woke up to the importance of television, its employees asserted its independence and in the 1960s, Czechoslovak Television experienced its most glorious era, contributing to free public debate. Even after the Warsaw Pact invasion of 1968, which ended the liberal period, not all the output of Czechoslovak TV was rubbish, argues Martin Štoll. The interview was broadcast on the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from 5th October 2018.
