Radio Sweden marks 70 years of broadcasting

This year, the external service of Swedish Radio (Sveriges Radio) turns 70. On July 1, 1938 the first ever broadcast from Stockholm directed abroad was in Swedish. A year later, programmes in English and German went on air. Today Swedish Radio broadcasts in 13 different languages.
Ahead of an anniversary program in September, the Radio Sweden website will publish a special archive including the most interesting reports of the previous seven decades and an online competition.
