The subject of the study is a comparison of television broadcasting for school-age children and youth by public broadcasters in Slovakia and the Czech Republic during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic in spring 2020. The authors selected and researched programs which were supposed to partially replace full-time teaching in primary schools. Radio and Television of Slovakia (RTVS) broadcast a program called Školský klub (School Club) and Czech Television broadcast the UčíTelka (Teaching TV) program. The aim of the group of authors was to analyze five parts of both programs broadcast in one week and then compare the results. In the theoretical part of the study, the authors characterize the broadcast during an emergency situation and present the examined programs. Subsequently, they are presenting an overview of television broadcasting during the mandatory quarantine in Slovakia in the children’s television JOJKO, which they divided into two categories: broadcasting focused on coronavirus and broadcasting focused on spending free time at home. In the research part, the authors carry out a qualitative analysis of the researched lectures with a focus on several aspects: visual design, tools used in the lecture, the role of the presenter and their performance, the overall contribution of the lesson in terms of topics and curriculum and interaction with viewers. They compare the results of both lectures and deduce the results of the analysis based on the findings. The result of the study is a comparison of the level, processing and benefits of lessons aimed to partially replace the teaching process of children and youth in primary schools in Slovakia and the Czech Republic at the time of emergency measures and quarantine caused by the COVID-19 virus.
