The latest from Radio Prague

I've mentioned a couple of times before that I listen to what used to be the old short-wave radio stations, now mostly Internet-only. Every now and then one or another of the stations has something interesting pertaining to film. Yesterday's edition of Radio Prague included an interview with Ludmila Claussová, head of the Czech Film Commission, discussing the attempt to get production companies to return to the Czech Republic to do location shooting, which was a thing in the 1990s thanks to the much lower costs there. That, and the ability to pass for various generic Central or Eastern European locations.

The link above is to a transcript of the interview. If you want the audio interview, there's a direct link just before the interview starts to the MP3 file, which is about 4.6MB and runs 10 minutes. There should also be an embedded audio player if you want to play the interview as streaming audio rather than downloading it.
