The trial of the young Russian dissident, who was among the first to alert public opinion in the West that, in Russia, sane people were placed in mental hospitals for their dissenting views.
Our society is still sick. It is sick with the fear which has remained with us from the time of Stalinism. But the process of society's spiritual regeneration has already begun, and it is impossible to stop it. Society already understands that the criminal is not he who washes our dirty linen in public, but he who dirties the linen. (5 January 1972) Bukovsky was unexpectedly freed and sent abroad on 18 December last year.
The programme is based on the transcript of the trial as published in Survey Journal. Edited and directed by JOHN THEOCHARIS
