The House of Polish Culture in Vilnius and the Institute of National Remembrance in Białystok invite for a documentary film ‘Zapomniana rozgłośnia’ (‘Forgotten broadcasting station’) (directed by Józef Wierzba) about one of the best broadcasting station of the Polish Radio in the interwar period.

Hulewicz, Beynar (Jasienica), Gałczyński, Łopalewski, Miłosz, Ordonówna and many others cooperated with the Radio.
The evening programme includes also other documentaries by Józef Wierzba, a journalist connected with Białystok centre of TVP (the Polish Television), the author of many films on the Poles in Borderlines and a series of broadcasts ‘Moje Kresy’ (‘My Borderlines’), ‘Opowieści wileńskie’ (‘Vilnius stories’), ‘Gdzieś na Rusi…’ (‘Somewhere in Ruthenia…’).
