Book "History of SRG 1983–2011"

The monopoly abolished: SRG amid a new order of private-sector radio and TV broadcasters

At the beginning of the 1980s, SRG was facing massive challenges. Far-reaching technological change brought about shifts in audience viewing and listening patterns, and SRG lost its monopoly on radio and TV stations in Switzerland. This third volume on the history of SRG over the past three decades brings the trilogy to a close. 

The book contains contributions in all four of Switzerland's national languages. Parts of it have been translated so that it can be read as a whole not only in German, but also in French and Italian.
