In the third episode of our series reflecting on the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Andrew Mueller explores the forms of resistance from within the Eastern Bloc. Whether led by peaceful playwrights, powerful trade unions or mutinous soldiers, how did people trapped behind the Iron Curtain fight back against the system? Andrew is joined by Andrei Codrescu, Michael Žantovský and Krzysztof Bobinski.
