In the past few weeks the world has applauded the brave and united stand that the Czechs have made in the face of Soviet occupation.

The High Chaparral series, which returns to BBC-2 next week, is filmed almost entirely on location in and around Tucson Arizona. For a few hectic days last summer a BBC crew joined the production unit to film it in action and to talk to some of the people involved.
