Notes: 
"The White Disease" shares the disc with "Krakatit" ("Krakatit").

From the booklet:

The film was used for television broadcast in a version with new opening credits [as seen on the Filmexport DVD], which were likely created in the 1950s, when the film was re-released as part of the celebration marking 60 years of Czechoslovak cinematography. In the course of the digital restoration, it was discovered that the original animated credit sequence was preserved in several of the prints held in the archive. These reinstated credits bring the restored version much closer to the film's original form.
