Life in Ceausescu's Romania

15 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 24 March 2013

During the communist dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu, Romanians lived in the shadow of his feared secret police force - the Securitate. Carmen Bugan was a young village girl whose life was turned upside down when her father dared to speak out against the system. From then on police agents recorded everything she and her family, said and did.
