O pořadu Surviving Utøya and Oslo

Surviving Utøya and Oslo is a documentary podcast series by Lukáš Houdek about the people whose lives were forever changed by the terrorist attacks in the center of Oslo and on Utøya island. Yet their stories are not just about pain and grief, but also about resilience and the will to go on. They are not just about surviving the terrorist attacks, but more so about surviving what came after.

Episode 1 delves into the attacks themselves through the eyes of those whose lives were irreversibly affected. Substantiating context is then added by Norwegian experts. The seventh and final episode is dedicated to the aftereffects of the attacks on Norwegian society. Lukáš Houdek speaks with experts from a variety of fields about how Norway, in so many ways an inspiring country, has dealt with the attacks. How did it handle the terrorist? What is the island of Utoya like today? As for Episodes 2-5, they reveal intimate portraits of survivors and the bereaved.

On the afternoon of July 22nd, 2011, the roughly-thirty-year-old Norwegian far-right extremist Anders Behring Breivik detonated nearly a ton of explosives in a white van parked in the government quarter in the center of Oslo. He killed eight people. Less than two hours later on the island of Utoya, amidst a summer camp organized by the youth wing of the then-ruling Labour Party, he shot dead 69 young people.

For the very first time, Radio Wave is releasing the series in both its original English-language version, as well as a Czech version. Actresses Denisa Barešová, Miluše Šplechtová, Jitka Smutná and Milena Steinmasslová and actors Jan Nedbal and Filip Rajmont lend their voices to the Czech translation.
