Robotková, Martina ; Novotný, David Jan (advisor) ; Doležal, Aleš (referee)
The bachelor's thesis entitled "The Berdych case in Czech film: from reality and newspaper/TV news to film treatment to film reviews" deals with an organized criminal group that formed around David Berdych, the bouncer from Discoland Sylvia, in the early 1990s. The specificity of the Berdych's case lies in the fact that detectives from the Department for Combating Organized Crime (OBOZ) were part of the criminal gang and they were covering up the criminal activities of the gang over the years. The Berdych's gang committed kidnappings, thefts and robberies until 2004, when two detectives from OBOZ, Helena Kahnová and Tomáš Gregor, managed to uncover the gang. The thesis focuses on the media portrayal of the Berdych's case, using selected Czech news websites and news programmes. The Berdych's gang later inspired the TV Nova series Expozitura and the documentary film Zákon Helena by filmmaker Petra Nesvačilová. The thesis deals with the specifics of the TV series and the documentary film, analysis of these film works and reviews of film critics and the public. The aim of the work was to present a comprehensive picture of the Berdych's case, which has gone down in history as the biggest case of organised crime intertwined with the police in our history.

According to this information, which is presented to the audience, the public forms an opinion about the wives of the presidents. The aim of this thesis is to describe a media image of all Czech first ladies in the years 1993-2020. To obtain their media images, articles from the daily newspapers, from Lidové noviny and Blesk were chosen. To achieve these results, a qualitative content analysis was chosen and complemented by a quantitative content analysis. Due to insufficient resources in the field of research of the first Czech ladies, foreign literature was used in the theoretical part. The final part of this thesis contains answers to research questions, a comparison of differences in coverage of the first ladies in two different types of media and the resulting media images of all Czech first ladies.
