This audio-visual research illuminates the first decades of the mass distribution of Ukrainian television. One of the centers of this expansion was Lviv, where a factory of television equipment was created in 1957, and the first Ukrainian television “Lviv” released. Television brought the ceremoniality of military parades, the excitement of sports competitions, the cleverness of intellectual games and the sublimity cosmic spaces into each home. At the same time, the practice of television watching shaped a completely new type of individual: inspired, informed, but also passive, atrophied, and unable to articulate their own political position.
