The proceedings of the 14th Extraordinary Congress of the Czechoslovak Communist Party in August 1968.
On 22 August 1968 Soviet forces invaded Czechoslovakia to stop the liberalisation of the country under Dubcek and to forestall the dismissal of the hard-liners in the party by the Congress due to be held in September 1968. But right under the noses of the Soviet troops that Congress was held: it was convened within a few hours of the news of the invasion.
Tonight's programme reconstructs the events of the Congress from the records of the proceedings which have now become available.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
