Explore SRG with «Metro»

“Metro” guides you station by station through all the important and interesting issues to do with the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRG SSR). See why SRG has a public mandate but is nevertheless not an institution established under public law. You can become acquainted with SRG's unique form of organization and see what objectives SRG wants to pursue in future. “Metro” is a tool for people in a hurry, but also for those who want to know exactly what's what. “Metro” is aimed at new employees, but there are also one or two things for "old SRG hands" to discover as well. Of course, people who don't work at SRG are also invited to get to know SRG better with ”Metro”. The first station on each “Metro” line provides a concise summary of the key facts. The second station looks more closely at the subject matter. Detailed information is available at station three, and clicking on station four will take you to the RSI, RTR, RTS, SRF and SWI Swissinfo Enterprise Units.
