Science on Czech Television

One of this year’s novelties is a section about the popularisation of science on Czech Television, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year.

One of the key faces of science on CT is no doubt Daniel Stach who returns to AFO this year. He is joined in the section by Milan Kruml’s lectures, and Jakub Adamus with Jakub Hošek, with whom we travel into the past – the archives of Czechoslovakian television and its attitude towards science. Experience screenings of films and documentary cycles from the production and distribution of CT. Several themes are explored including the taboo imposed on sexuality in Czechoslovakia as well as people searching for the will to live with an incurable illness. Art, ecology, climate, and the admiration of craft also make an appearance.
