Journalist tour of Czech Television's new exhibition The story of the program, which maps the professions involved in the creation of television broadcasting, May 17, 2023, Kavčí hory, Prague.
Prague – The Czech Television (ČT) interactive exhibition entitled The Story of the Program will show children the origin of films or series, from the theme to the costumes to the tricks. They will also present 50 professions that are involved in the creation of television programs. Today, the exhibition was presented to the media by its author, head of stage operations of the Czech Television, Pavel Hénik. People will be able to view it for free starting May 19, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. next to the ČT Gallery in the premises of the former Rohlík restaurant, which had previously been unused for a long time.
The exhibition gradually leads visitors through corridors, rooms and alcoves. “We start with the set and gradually introduce five dozen television professions and the comprehensive development and production of the show,” said Hénik. According to him, this is an exhibition for children between the ages of approximately three and 12 years. “We present television work in a playful way so that children can touch the individual activities and figure out for themselves how things are done and work,” he added. The exhibition will show them the creative studio of the screenwriter, where the subject is created. The make-up and costume room continues, where children will be able to try on the costumes themselves. This is followed by a trick and activity studio, where children will see how various sounds are inserted into films and fairy tales – for example, the clatter of horse hooves.
The voice of actor Josef Dvořák in the role of Maxips Fík will guide the children through the entire exhibition. In the rest room, there is a painting based on the original designs of Jiří Šalamoun, the author of the illustrations of the original animated series Maxipes Fík.
