Over the next week Radio Prague will be marking the 60th anniversary of the end of Word War II with a number of special reports, ranging from a trip to the English village where the Czechoslovak government in exile were based to the first military parade on Prague's Letna plain since the fall of communism.
On Sunday we'll be concentrating on the numerous commemorations which are taking place, including a reenactment of a bloody battle for the Czech Radio building and the biggest military parade this country has seen since 1989. We'll also be reporting from Pilsen, which was liberated by the US Army.
And finally on Monday a special Talking Point will be devoted to the controversial expulsion of the country's German minority in the aftermath of the War.
