The Czechoslovakian democracy established in 1918 led to the flowering of a cultural and technological movement that became known as Czech
Modernism. Continuing BBC2's season of Tales from Prague, architecture critic Martin Pawley reflects on these high-tech buildings and contrasts them with the history of Prague presented by its older, fairy-tale architecture.
Additionally, Czech architect Eva Jificna returns to Prague after an enforced absence of 21 years. She examines her roots and talks to her contemporaries in Prague about the fragmented legacy of modernism in Czechoslovakia.

(Film director Miloi Forman chose Prague as the location for his Oscar-winning film 'Amadeus' which can be seen at 9.05pm)

Words Return to Music. For
Alfred Schnittke , music is the most potent form of human communication. It can address life's most important questions with an intensity and sharpness unmatched by words. This profile of Russia's most celebrated living composer explores the many faces of his work - from political subversion to religious mysticism. Shot on location in Moscow, the film examines why his music is so popular with the public and so unpopular with Soviet officials. It also reveals why, after perestroika, his preoccupation with good and evil, life and death, has never been more relevant.

1781: Court Composer Antonio Salieri is the most famous musician in all of Vienna and a great favourite of Emperor Joseph II.
Then, from nowhere a young man called Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart changes all that. Salieri becomes desperate - how can he rid himself of this brilliant young interloper?
This stunning screen adaptation of Peter Shaffer 's award-winning play was filmed in some of the original locations used by Mozart for performances of his operas, the most prized of these being the Tyl Theatre in Prague, used for the premiere of Don Giovanni.
The winner of eight Academy Awards including best picture, best actor and best director for Milos Forman was also a huge box office success.
