Program
After the Velvet Revolution
Program Description

The fall of Communism in Czechoslovakia in 1989 unleased great hopes among Czechs and Slovaks for starting life anew under Vaclav Havel's leadership. This program chronicles the experiences of five different families and individuals for a firsthand look at what post-revolutionary life was like for: a South Bohemian family that reclaims its land and farm; a former underground rock star who becomes a member of parliament; a woman who lived under threat of arrest for her work on a banned newspaper; an unemployed Slovakian who campaigned after the revolution against dividing the nation; and, a former student activist now dedicated to publishing a small literary magazine.
