The project “Echoes of Normalisation” is a series of nine radio broadcasts focusing on the situation in Czechoslovakia in the years 1968–1989. Together with the Czech Radio editor Ivana Denčevová and historian Michal Pullmann we have prepared topical discussions on the situationof the period, starting with an insight into the political structures and the power apparatus, through everyday routines and social policy of the state, to culture and education. Moderated discussion of two historians combined with texts of the period, sound clips and musical pieces. All of this iscomplemented with short dramatic pieces produced by students. The series is apart of the Historie Plus programme presented by Czech Radio Plus.
