Chuck Norris vs. Communism: Keeping Romania In Ignorance
Clip: Season 17 Episode 5 | 1m 6s
In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Chuck Norris vs Communism, Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceau?escu limits television to a single, government-run channel, which only broadcasts two hours a day. As one Romanian puts it: denying 20 million people access to information was a way to "keep a whole country in ignorance for years."
