In spring, our group has collaborated on shooting of Nedej se!, the environmentalistic broadcast of the Czech national television. On the last Sunday, there was a premiere of the broadcast. We intensively discuss the current practice of various post-industrial sites restoration with a special focus on contrasting technical reclamation and spontaneous succession. From the points of view of biodiversity conservation, and economic and aesthetic aspects, using of natural processes in the disturbed sites restoration is much more efficient. We prove it by various examples in the broadcast. Although the whole broadcast is in Czech only, anybody interested can find more details for example in our English popular book or in some of our scientific papers.
