The Magnificent Five (working title)
After living in an institution for twenty-eight years, Petr relocates to a training apartment, where he is preparing for a possible move into the “real world”. This untraditional look at a socially sensitive issue from the inside out, without the standard preconceived views of sympathy or irony, shows that the basic principles underlying interpersonal relationships are always the same – touching, humorous, and fragile.

One Man Show
One of the longest broadcasted programmes in the history of Stream, an Internet TV, is based on creative disruptions of the standards of commercial TV stations. The episode that undermined the shooting of a reality cooking show, Prostřeno (Come Dine With Me), and touched on the problems of people who suffer from Tourette syndrome was one of those whose broadcast caused a media scandal.

Doctors: The Czechs are Inventive
This narrative, multi-faceted exploration behind the scenes of medicine literally takes a look at what’s on the other side of the screen. At points with curiosity, at others with a personal, technical, or suspenseful tone, it uses examples of leading Czech doctors (a plastic surgeon, a neurosurgeon, and a cardiologist) to present the social connotations of a service that is acknowledged yet also undervalued.

This reality show makes it possible for a British four-member family to travel in time and experience a different decade each week through “the life of one household” (starting with the 1950s and ending with a fictional future). This entertaining socio-cultural experiment moves smoothly between topics like fashion, technology, and politics, and even covers “what vacuum cleaners meant for women, and mortgages for the middle-class”.
