Located in southeastern Europe, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is a country of great physical and cultural diversity. The program explains that for many centuries Yugoslavia was an area located at the crossroads of an important trade route. Not until 1918 were the independent regions unified into a multinational state. After World War II, Josip Broz Tito set an independent political and economic course for Yugoslavia. The program also considers post-war industrial growth and modernization, agriculture, and elements of her socialist society, such as the press, health care, education and governmental functioning since Tito's death.
