Stoll uses the development of Czechoslovak Television as a lens through which to track the country along its path from democracy to Nazi occupation, to communism, to revolution, and back to democracy. His topics include pioneers of television: Jaroslav Safranek--the Czech baird, television as a political matter: a matter of all-state importance, the birth of television in Stalinist Czechoslovakia, television as the last instrument of power, television as a participant of the Velvet Revolution, and the birth of a public broadcaster.
