When I was a young boy in 1980s our class was asked to keep company for a group of teens from Soviet Estonia. I think it was very exiting for both sides, though our new Estonian friends from behind the iron curtain were not that interested in the 'Cultural Exhange Program', they were more interested in things like shopping centers and hamburgers. And we Finns didn't mind at all.
That time Estonians could watch Finnish tv, though Soviet Union tried to stop that, western tv series like Dallas must had been as popular in Tallinn as they were in Helsinki
