English title
Database of Czechoslovakian Television Broadcasting

This thesis describes the process of creating a Czechoslovak Television broadcasting database using optical character recognition technology. The aim of the work is to create a database that can be accessed through a simple web interface, in which it will be possible to browse individual shows, their descriptions and to search among the shows. Searching will also be possible by people involved in the shows. Tesseract was used as the optical character recognition engine, obtained shows were entered into a SQLite database and Flask was used for the web interface. Scanned pages of Týdeník Československé televize were used as source materials and the years from 1966 to 1992 were processed. The results of the work give users an insight into the history of television broadcasting in Czechoslovakia and can be used, for example, for the purposes of historians.
