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. Radio Sweden will of course celebrate this anniversary together with YOU, our listeners and Web users. Ahead of our anniversary programme in September, we'll provide you with a special archive including the most interesting reports of the previous seven decades and an online competition.
