Demonstrators in the Czech capital Prague marched through the city centre this week to mark 50 years since Communist security forces brutally suppressed mass protests a year after the 1968 Soviet occupation. However, the march was also a protest against the current political establishment, amidst claims that democracy and the rule of law are increasingly at risk. Rob Cameron reports..

Controversy surrounds a plan to erect a replica of a Marian column in Prague's Old Town Square, a century after it was torn down. For supporters, it was a symbol of the defence of Prague during the Thirty Years' War. For opponents, a reminder of the forced re-Catholisation of the Czech Lands. As Rob Cameron reports, the dispute goes to the heart of Czech cultural, religious and national identity.
Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis survived a vote of no-confidence in parliament this week, despite being the subject of the largest demonstrations in the country since the 1989 overthrow of Communism. More than a quarter of a million people took to the streets in protest against his involvement in a corruption scandal. Rob Cameron reports.
The Czech capital, Prague, is a popular tourist destination and many visitors notice a preponderance of stalls in the Old Town selling something called 'Old Bohemian Trdelnik' — a hollow, doughy pastry placed on a wooden spit and roasted over hot coals. It's cheap, sugary and filling, but as Rob Cameron reports — while it might be old, it's certainly not Bohemian.
Dozens of creative thinkers from the worlds of technology, civic activism, business and the arts in Eastern Europe and Central Asia descended on the Czech capital Prague recently, for the annual Unlock conference. The event aims to celebrate and showcase how tech, business, activism and the arts can combine to bring about change in former Soviet or Eastern bloc countries. Rob Cameron reports.
Prague saw another huge demonstration against the Czech prime minister, Andrej Babis, this week — the latest in a series of mass protests calling on him and his newly appointed justice minister to resign. They're angry at allegations that Mr Babis — the country's second richest man — fraudulently obtained EU subsidies. Rob Cameron was among the crowds and sent this report.
