Czech lands

The Czech lands or the Bohemian lands are the three historical regions of Bohemia and Czech Silesia. Together the three have formed the Czech part of Czechoslovakia since 1918 and the Czech Republic since 1 January 1969, which became independent on 1 January 1993. In a historical context, Czech texts use the term to refer to any territory ruled by the Kings of Bohemia, i.e. the lands of the Bohemian Crown as established by Emperor Charles IV in the 14th century. This would include territories like the Lusatias and the whole of Silesia, all ruled from Prague Castle at that time. After the conquest of Silesia by the Prussian king Frederick the Great in 1742, the remaining lands of the Bohemian Crown—Bohemia and Austrian Silesia—have been more or less co-extensive with the territory of the modern-day Czech Republic; the term Czech lands has been used to describe different things by different people. While the Czech name of Bohemia proper is Čechy, the adjective český refers to both "Bohemian" and "Czech".

The non-auxiliary term for the present-day Czech lands is Česko, documented as early as 1704. During the period of the First and Second Czechoslovak Republic the Czech lands were referred to as Historical lands in particular when mentioned together with Slovakia; the Bohemian lands had been settled by Celts from 5th BC until 2nd AD by various Germanic tribes until they moved on to the west during the Migration Period. At the beginning of the 5th century the population decreased vigorously and, according to mythology led by a chieftain Čech, the first Western Slavs came in the second half of the 6th century. In the course of the decline of the Great Moravian realm during the Hungarian invasions of Europe in the 9th and 10th century, the Czech Přemyslid dynasty established the Duchy of Bohemia. Backed by the East Frankish kings, they prevailed against the reluctant Bohemian nobility and extended their rule eastwards over the adjacent Moravian lands. In 1198 Duke Ottokar I of Bohemia received the royal title by the German anti-king Philip of Swabia.

Attached to his Kingdom of Bohemia was the Margraviate of Moravia established in 1182 and Kłodzko Land, the County of Kladsko. From the second part of the 13th century onwards, German colonists settled in the mountainous border area on the basis of the kings' invitation during the Ostsiedlung and lived alongside the Slavs; the Silesian lands north of the Sudetes mountain range had been ruled by the Polish Piast dynasty from the 10th century onwards. While Bohemia rose to a kingdom, the Silesian Piasts alienated from the fragmenting Kingdom of Poland. After in 1310 the Bohemian crown had passed to the mighty House of Luxembourg, nearly all Silesian dukes pledged allegiance to King John the Blind and in 1335 the Polish king Casimir III the Great renounced Silesia by the Treaty of Trentschin. King John had acquired the lands of Bautzen and Görlitz in 1319 and 1329, his son and successor Charles IV King of the Romans since 1346, incorporated the Silesian and Lusatian estates into the Bohemian Crown and upon his coronation as Holy Roman Emperor confirmed their indivisibility and affiliation with the Holy Roman Empire.

In 1367 Emperor Charles IV purchased the former March of Lusatia in the northwest. However, during the Thirty Years' War both Lusatias passed to the Electorate of Saxony by the Peace of Prague. After the Bohemian Crown passed to the House of Habsburg in 1526, the Bohemian crown lands together with the Kingdom of Hungary and the Austrian "hereditary lands" became part of the larger Habsburg Monarchy. In 1742 the Habsburg queen Maria Theresa lost the bulk of Silesia to Prussia upon the First Silesian War, part of the War of the Austrian Succession; the coat of arms of the Czech Republic incorporates those of the three integral Czech lands: Bohemia proper and Czech Silesia. The arms of Bohemia originated with the Bohemian kingdom, like those of Moravia with the Moravian margraviate; the arms of Czech Silesia originated as those of all of the historical region of Silesia, much of, now in Poland.

KTDO

KTDO, virtual channel 48, is a Telemundo owned-and-operated television station serving El Paso, United States, licensed to Las Cruces, New Mexico. The station is owned by the Telemundo Station Group subsidiary of NBCUniversal. KTDO's studios are located on North Mesa Street/Highway 20 in northwest El Paso, its transmitter is located atop the Franklin Mountains on the El Paso city limits; the station first signed on the air November 18, 1984 as KASK-TV. The TV station was an outgrowth of KASK-FM 103.1. KASK-TV went off the air in October 1987. Bayport was approved to relocate the tower to a new site near Anthony, New Mexico, increase power from 74,000 watts to the maximum 5 million. Channel 48 was sold to Robert Muñoz and reemerged on June 13, 1990 as KZIA; the station was added to the El Paso cable system in 1991. Lee Enterprises bought the station in 1993 for $440,000, after a separate $900,000 sale fell through the year prior. "Z48" became a charter affiliate of the United Paramount Network upon the network's launch on January 16, 1995.

In 1997, the station's calls were changed to KMAZ ahead of a January 16, 1998 change to Telemundo and Spanish-language programming. The change was made to improve the station's financial position and because management felt the market was ready for a second Spanish-language station on the United States side of the border. In 2001, the station's call letters were changed to KTYO. In 2004, the station was purchased by the Arlington, Virginia-based ZGS Group for $11.8 million. As a result of the switch, UPN did not have a full-time affiliate in the El Paso market for the remainder of the network's run, with its programming being relegated to a secondary affiliation on KKWB until it switched to TeleFutura in January 2002. On December 4, 2017, NBCUniversal's Telemundo Station Group announced its purchase of ZGS' television stations, including KTDO; the sale was completed on February 1, 2018. The station's digital signal is multiplexed: KTDO shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 48, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate.

The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 47. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 48. KTDO's main channel was seen in analog in El Paso proper via low-power translator KTDO-LP on channel 48 to allow viewers in El Paso and on the Mexican side of the market to continue to watch the station over-the-air. With the sale to NBCUniversal and Mexico's digital transition having been completed, the license for KTDO-LP was returned to the Federal Communications Commission on November 30, 2018, was formally canceled on December 21. KTDO presently broadcasts 12 hours of locally produced newscasts each week. On November 16, 2010, KTDO launched a news department, with half-hour Spanish-language newscasts airing at 5:00 and 10:00 p.m. under the title Telenoticias El Paso. On June 11, 2018, the station launched newscasts at 4 and 4:30 p.m. adding to the established 5 p.m. newscast. With this expansion, KTDO has more hours of local news than any other Spanish-language station in El Paso.

KASK-TV had launched with a local news operation, airing a 5-minute news brief at 7 p.m. and a main news at 10 p.m. As KZIA-TV, the station carried a 9 p.m. local newscast, "Newswatch 48", hosted by former KDBC-TV anchor Bill Mitchell, a replay of KDBC's 6 p.m. newscast at 9:30 p.m. In 1991, channel 48 began carrying by microwave link all of KOB-TV's local newscasts live from Albuquerque in a first-of-its-kind arrangement; when Lee Enterprises—owner of KRQE-TV—bought the station in 1993, the station shifted to carrying that station's news, though Lee planned to begin local newscasts in Las Cruces.
