Due to their geographical location, the inhabitants of the Dresden region in the Elbe Valley were unable to receive West German radio and TV channels (which was possible in much of the rest of the GDR). Dresden was too far away from the broadcasting towers positioned at the border and in West Berlin. Their only information therefore came from the socialist media. As a result, other GDR inhabitants, who secretly listened to the West German media, had nicknamed this region “Tal der Ahnungslosen”, the “valley of those who know nothing”.
