Smile Let's take a look at the Soviet TV

"Komsomol (All-Union Leninist Young Communist League, b.1918) was a youth organization controlled by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.The name comes from the first syllables of three Russian words meaning Communist Union of Youth. In Russian - Kommunisticheskiy Soyuz Molodyozhi. This became a typical model for the formation of acronyms after the 1917 Revolution.

Basically, every teenager from the age of 14 in the USSR was a Komsomol member or komsomolets. It was the third stage in the hierarchy of youth organizations – the first two stages were Oktyabryonok (from October - the month in which the Bolshevik Revolution took place) and Pioner (pioneer). Only those who studied poorly or were sent to juvenile prisons did not receive this rank. Children of very religious parents were also excluded. Komsomol membership was valid up until the age of 28. But those who wanted to join the ranks of the Communist Party earlier could do so.

What did Komsomol organizations do? They encouraged good pupils and “spanked” the bad ones. They set up meetings to support the decisions of the Communist Party. In the fight against drinking in mid-1980s, for example, “alcohol-free” Komsomol weddings were heavily promoted. They also performed free labor and volunteer work – like helping poor or weak collective farmers with the autumn harvest. Surprisingly, such activities were fun for most of the young Komsomol members, as they didn’t have to go to school or university while performing these tasks.

Monthly Komsomol meetings were held in every class, in every school, in every institution.

For many teenagers, Komsomol membership was not interpreted as propaganda – it was simply a stage in their development and most still maintain fond memories today.

The Komsomol was set up on 29 October 1918 - one year after the Revolution - at the first Youth Congress under the patronage of the Bolshevik Party. The aim was to teach young people the values of Communism and prepare them for life under the rule of the Communist Party. This was crucial for the Soviet Republic during the Civil War (1918-1920), when young Komsomol members showed great bravery on the fronts. Immediately following the war young people were at the forefront of rebuilding the war-devastated country."

TV program Time / Время was the main information program on television.





Anchorperson:

0:01 - The investigation is still ongoing and the consequences of the recent forced blackout in New York are being assessed. Almost a whole day a huge city existed without electricity. Mayor of New York called the incident a genuine nightmare. And this applies not only to the many inconveniences that inevitably arise in a big city when the supply of electricity stops.

0:32 - This is also a blackout effect. As soon as New York was plunged into darkness, looting immediately began in its quarters. Crowds of people in the dark ran to the shops and smashed windows. They burst in and took everything they could get: jewelry, TVs, clothes, shoes and even furniture. And all night long fires burned in the city.

The police were unable to stop this sudden wave of robbery. About 3 thousand people were arrested but this is only a small part of those people who participated in the looting.








The pathos here is that for the Soviet people it was strange that such disturbances could arise only because of the blackout. In the Soviet Union, the power outage, as far as I know, has never been accompanied by such criminogenic bursts.

That's because the USSR was not filled with savage 70-I.Q. monkey niggers who turn to violence at the drop of a pin.

0:20 - An old Russian Waltz "Berezka / Birch tree"

7:20 - A dance picture "Farewell, Maslenitsa"

"Maslenitsa is an Eastern Slavic religious and folk holiday, celebrated during the last week before Great Lent, that is, the eighth week before Eastern Orthodox Pascha (Easter). Maslenitsa corresponds to the Western Christian Carnival, except that Orthodox Lent begins on a Monday instead of a Wednesday, and the Orthodox date of Easter can differ greatly from the Western Christian date.

According to archeological evidence from 2nd century A.D. Maslenitsa may be the oldest surviving Slavic holiday. Maslenitsa has its origins in the pagan tradition. In Slavic mythology, Maslenitsa is a sun-festival, personified by the ancient god Volos, and a celebration of the imminent end of the winter. In the Christian tradition, Maslenitsa is the last week before the onset of Great Lent.

During the week of Maslenitsa, meat is already forbidden to Orthodox Christians, and it is the last week during which eggs, milk, cheese and other dairy products are permitted, leading to its name of "Cheese-fare week" or "Crepe week". The most characteristic food of Maslenitsa is bliny thin pancakes or crepes, made from the rich foods still allowed by the Orthodox tradition that week: butter, eggs and milk.

Since Lent excludes parties, secular music, dancing and other distractions from spiritual life, Maslenitsa represents the last chance to take part in social activities that are not appropriate during the more prayerful, sober and introspective Lenten season.

In some regions, each day of Maslenitsa had its traditional activity. Monday may be the welcoming of “Lady Maslenitsa”. The community builds the Maslenitsa effigy out of straw, decorated with pieces of rags."

The text was taken from Wikipedia.


12:53 - A dance picture "At the well"

17:39 - A dance picture "At the autumn fair"

22:08 - Russian Maidens' Round Dance "Berezka / Birch tree"










Waltz "Berezka / Birch tree"

Birch stands in a silver dress
Among the harsh pines and between the dark willows.
Trees, flowers and bushes bowed
Before the proud greatness of this beauty.
Before the proud greatness of this beauty.

Birch covered with green foliage
As if it was dressed in a lace outfit.
Our people sing songs about birch
and in their songs they call birch a bride.
And in their songs they call birch a bride.

[The first five lines are sung by them at the beginning and at the end.]



"At the well"

To make my heart happy
And to make my soul want to sing,
For this I need...
Two girls:
To have a true friend.


In order not to get lost in the forest
I need to know all the paths.
In order not to fall in love in vain...
Two girls:
You need to make a more rigorous selection.


To a swallow flew
Through the air,
All together:
It is enough
To have two light wings.


In order to grow mushrooms
In spruce and birch forests,
It is necessary that
It rains frequently.


Two girls:
To make my heart happy

And to make my soul want to sing,

Two girls:
For this I need
To have a true friend.


On the bucket freezes blue ice…
Dear friend,
Two girls:
Do not regret the time for our meeting.


The cuckoo sang to me
Over the rapid river.
Two girls:
You come to me, my goodness,

To soothe your heart.


All together:
My sled is coming down the hill
And I got scared.
Two girls:
They say…

But I do not believe in it

Two girls:
…your lover loves two girls.


All together:
To make my heart happy
And to make my soul want to sing,
For this I need
To have a true friend.

-40 Celsius = -40 Fahrenheit



An annotation:

"The movie is about how Novosibirsk lives in the conditions of the severe Siberian winter. It is difficult to imagine that in the city of minus 40 Celsius but life is in full swing and the townspeople go to work, play sports, walk in the parks, and behind the wide windows of the houses bloom gardens with tropical plants, including coffee…

The variety of plants in the greenhouse of the Botanical Garden of the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences is amazing. However, exotic plants and beautiful flowers can be seen not only in greenhouses, but also in huge factory workshops, children's institutions and in the hall of the House of Scientists."

Anchorperson:

0:01 - From 2 to 67 centimeters diagonally dimensions of cathode ray tubes for black-and-white and color TVs that produces Lviv production Association "Kinescop". A kinescope for a small-sized color television was created here two years ago. On this basis, experts from Leningrad have developed a color TV "Электроника-430" which has a screen size of 25 centimeters diagonally.

0:26 - Look at it. It has good color quality, pleasant appearance, light weight (7.5 kg) and sensory channel switching.

0:37 - And now the specialists of the plant, not slowing down the pace of the main production of various kinescopes, started the mass production of small-sized color TVs. For this purpose, a special assembly workshop has been created here, equipped with equipment, which was created here at the plant. Here another important problem is solved, the creation of branch plants in the Lviv region to provide the workshop with component parts. After all, the growth of production of such TVs largely depends on this. At the moment, the plant produces several tens of thousands such TVs per year. Meanwhile, the demand for them is increasing.

1:12 - A reporter: Nikolai Pavlovich, of course we and our viewers would like to know what will be done to increase the production of such small TVs?

1:21 - Nikolai Konkin CEO: Probably we do not meet the needs of consumers today. Not only we, but also other plants. These TVs are in great demand. We take all measures to increase release of TVs. We create equipment for their production. We are creating branches that will feed our so far small production of these TVs. If plants that supply us with parts and materials help us, then we will be able to increase their production by 2-3 times.










I remind that Lviv is now part of Ukraine.

In Russian Wikipedia there is such information about this plant:

"At the turn of 1995-1996, the plant stopped working. In March 1997, on the claim of the state tax Inspectorate in Lviv, a case of bankruptcy of the Kinescop plant was initiated. On November 10, 1999, the court issued a decision recognizing the Kinescope plant as bankrupt. On April 6, 2000 the sale of the plant's property began at the auction.

Further, the production workshops and buildings of the plant were demolished."



I remember that Mr. Fico told on this forum about the extraordinary prosperity of the countries of Eastern Europe after the transition to capitalism. Here is a vivid example of such "prosperity".

Fashion "Winter-75" (1975)
This makes me think of Lara from Doctor Zhivago in her fur coat.


The aerobics video reminds me of the aerobics popularity in the US at the same time in the 1980s with TV programs like Jazzercise.

Was the Komsomol the sponsor of the K-278 Komsomolets submarine?

I watched a few TV shows Jazzercise. It seemed to me that there is a focus on the dance component.

I doubt it to be so. Komsomol had other tasks.






Report on the beauty of Donetsk and the work of the mine "Trudovskaya" which is one of the largest enterprises of the city.



Anchorperson:

0:01 - Donetsk. All who came to us say that it is one of the most beautiful cities of our country. 10,000 families annually celebrate housewarming. There are theaters, the Winter Palace of Sports, Palaces of Culture, the Palace of Youth, stadiums, hospitals, facilities for children. The pride of Donetsk are roses. There are one million rose bushes here. This is the same as the number of inhabitants in the city.

0:23 - This is the mine "Trudovskaya". The miners of the brigade of Anatoly Polishchuk produce 3 thousand tons of coal from one slab per day. This year they decided to mine one million tons of coal and they are close to their goal. Now in the region there are more than 60 brigades whose workplaces are equipped with modern high-performance complexes. They are role models for all Donbas miners. The coal mining plan was exceeded by 2.5 million tons of coal.

0:48 - What can be more in our country than the happiness of work? You are respected, appreciated and your work team proud of you.

But the miners have their special happiness. After all, a miner brings people warmth and light. Therefore, he has a great national gratitude.

Anchorperson:

0:01 - Illuminated Christmas trees near the largest church in West Berlin Gedähtniskirche are designed to set people in a festive mood. But for many people in West Berlin, Christmas is primarily a business.

0:17 - Festively decorated shop windows should attract customers and encourage them to spend their annual cash savings in stores. These cash savings vary in size and come in different ways.

0:32 - For example, this organ-grinder is trying to increase his income through Christmas donations.

0:40 - But the owners of the electrical concern Siemens are counting their billions. Over the past 7 years, their investments amounted to exactly one billion DM (Deutsche marks).

0:53 - But during this time, 10,000 workers were laid off from the West German factories of Siemens. And in this respect, Siemens is no exception here.

1:03 - Reduced production at the plant of Mannesmann. One of the factories of the AEG (Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft) concern dismissed half of its workers and the other factory was completely closed.

1:15 - At the entrance of one of the factories, West Berlin Communists distribute leaflets against mass layoffs.

1:24 - Chairman of the District Organization of the Socialist Unified Party of the West Berlin District of Tiergarten (?) Comrade Fritz Enake (?).

1:32 - Comrade Fritz Enake:

Excuse me, but I can't translate from German










The pathos of this video is that the difference in income in the USSR was insignificant. And in the USSR, no one was threatened by unemployment.

The television program "Morning Post" has been on television since 1974. It was a very popular music tv program.






An annotation:

The program was filmed on the eve of Victory Day (May 9) in the Gorky Central Park of Culture and Rest in Moscow.





0:19 - Anchorperson: Hello! Good morning. Sunday is always a bit like a holiday, and today's Sunday is especially similar on it. Moscow dresses up in bright clothes. Moscow enjoys the spring. On such a day it is impossible to sit at home. And even a little rain is not a hindrance for a walk. The rain is already as warm as summer rains.

0:44-2:29 - [Ksenia Georgiadi sings the song "I walk in Moscow". She (born 1949) is a Soviet and Russian pop singer of Greek origin.]

2:33 - Anchorperson: It is not surprising that after a walk around the city we are here in the Gorky Central Park of Culture and Rest. Here people have fun and relax. They bring children here and meet here their friends. And here, rising on the Ferris wheel to the sky itself, they can see from the height our beautiful spring city.

2:54-6:38 - [Yuri Denisov and the ensemble "Carousel" sings the song "If the sky was a mirror".]

6:44 - Anchorperson: Please note that there are many fountains in the park. Since it has become a tradition to make a date at the fountain, do not forget to agree at which fountain you will wait for each other. And then your meeting is sure to take place.

7:02-10:06 - [Lydia Rotaru and Aurika Rotaru sing the song "I'm waiting". They are Soviet and Ukrainian pop singers of Moldavian origin.]

10:10 - Anchorperson: Everyone will find their favorite entertainment in the park. After all, every alley in the park ends with an entrance to some attraction or dance floor or leads to an open stage where artists perform. But do not hurry, because the day is just beginning and on the alleys themselves there will be a place for rest, reflections and memories associated with the same but now distant May days [1945].

10:37-13:28 - [Vladimir Makarov sings the song "We are not old". He (1932-2008) was a Soviet singer, lyric baritone.]

13:32 - Anchorperson: We have been here for a long time but have never visited the rides, did not ride on the carousel, did not fly on the swings. Сhildren are clearly ahead of us. Of course, all these attractions are primarily designed for them. But adults also sometimes want to remember their childhood. And here it is absolutely not forbidden, and there will be enough places for attractions for all and children and adults and Muscovites and visiting guests.

14:01-17:35 - [Szűcs Judith sings the song "I'm Trembling". She (born 1953) is a Hungarian disco and pop singer. Apparently she sings it in Hungarian.]

17:37 - Anchorperson: You have already seen the main entrance to the park, but I would like to add that you can get to the park not only from land but also from the Moscow River. It is most convenient to do this on a riverboat, but you can use simpler ways. Some can do without any aids (a duck) but this is unique because the water in the river is still quite cold. Therefore, I recommend a more comfortable way of arrival for example a boat. As you can see in it, besides the musicians there are two more huge musical instruments. Do you think these musical instruments are not so huge? Wait a minute! Now all things will fall into its place: the musical instruments, the musicians and the fountain. Attention! Music starts.

18:49-22:05 - [Vladimir Belyaev and Kirill Ryazhsky perform instrumental piece "Regtime". Composer is Charles Berry.]

22:08 - Anchorperson: And now let's look a little bit ahead in the future. In the evening this park will turn into a large dance floor. The lights will be lit, the reflections of the lights will move on the river and music will sound until night. So it will be tonight. So it was yesterday. So it was many years ago.

22:30-24:12 - [Lyudmila Gurchenko sings the song "In the City Garden" (fragment from the concert-movie "Favorite songs"). She (1935-2011) was a popular Soviet actress, singer and entertainer.]

24:14 - Anchorperson: At some point, the dances will be ended and the park will be quiet. And the crowd of people will gradually go home. And, maybe, they will bring joy and spring fun to their homes, which the old Moscow park generously gave them. And let the joy of peace, happiness and spring land never stop in your homes during everyday worries.

24:41-28:17 - [The group of Vyacheslav Dobrynin sings the song "Earth is our home". A soloist is Sergey Mazaev.]
