On Sunday, the evening before 17th November, Channel 1 (Jednotka : ) of the Slovak public TV on aired the Ceremony Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Velvet Revolution. It looked back on the hectic days of a quarter of a century ago, when we were jingling our keys on the squares, it showed authentic reports and interviews with the actors of this extraordinary social movement. At the end of the show, space was given to talented young people who remember little of the revolutionary days, yet find creative ways to build on its message today. We are delighted that the producers of the commemoration ceremony also approached our colleague Martin Vavrinčík to present the achievements of ETP Slovakia.
