The Archive of the Romanian Revolution of December 1989

Generalul Nicolae Tudor (TVR 23 decembrie 1989)

Army General Nicolae Tudor, who was in charge of the defense of the Television Station from 22 December 1989, made an important announcement on 23 December 1989 on Romanian Television.  I have been able to find the transcript of what he said below from the transcripts of Radio Bucharest.  Notably, in the 4 hour plus tapes claiming to have the entirety of what was broadcast on TVR during these days, the vast majority of it is from 22/23 December and it appears this announcement and many other clips are not available on the Internet.  I found the following from what appears to be clips of the live broadcast of TV Novi Sad of the former Yugoslavia (fellow researchers:  if you use this, it is only fair you give me credit, because this is an unusual and hardly straightforward find).  I will return to discuss Tudor’s statement at another time.
