ICE - Insight Central Europe

r_2100x1400_radio_praha.png

Coming up on Insight Central Europe - the cost of patrolling the region's skies. As ordinary Austrians vote against spending billions on Eurofighter Typhoons, Czechs delay the purchase of Gripen jet fighters to replace an ageing fleet of MIGs, and Rover offers Poland offset programmes to pay for their Gripens - we ask whether the huge expenditure is justified given the slim chance of military conflict in the region. Also this week, Slovakia tries to head off low voter turn out in next month's general election, and we remember Jan Letzner, the Czech architect behind Hiroshima's "A-Bomb Dome."
