A problem that shouldn’t have existed: Drugs in Socialist Czechoslovakia

A series of videos from the Czech Television Archive takes viewers on a journey through the history of drug use in communist Czechoslovakia. From LSD experiments to home pill swallowing to the emergence of a drug subculture in the 1970s. The programme includes excerpts from dramatic, documentary and news productions and will give the viewer an idea of how the topic of “non-alcohol addiction” was (in)presented in the Czechoslovakia of the time.
Presented by Jakub Hošek – editor of the archive and programme funds of ČT
