TV Guide 1968 represents so far the biggest web project the Czech TV archives has participated on. The idea of transformation of old paper TV guide into its digital interactive version was born as the 50th anniversary of the Prague Spring was coming closer. The more often we were leafing through old issues to search for relevant information about the then broadcast, the more intensely we were dreaming about its online version available for all users searching for the same information that would like same as the old paper version. But we didn’t want only a textual database, we decided to create a fully-fledged AV portal and publish there as many AV materials, sound files, photos and articles as we could. The guide was being released week after week during the whole year 2018. Due to IPR reasons we couldn’t publish everything that survived, but still it stands for very complex source of broadcast of Czechoslovak TV in the important year 1968.
