About Jaroslav Dietl

Jaroslav Dietl (May 22, 1929, Zagreb – June 29, 1985, Prague) was a Czech author of television series, film and television screenwriter, playwright and dramaturg working mainly during the period of normalization.

Dietl is considered to have been the first Czech writer to create multi-generational drama series, usually on a grand scale. The scheme of his narration was based on certain social environments, such as health, agriculture, industry, and trade, which framed the behaviour and relationships of his characters.
