90 years of Polish Radio

Last sunday marked ninety years since Poland's first radio broadcast on 1 February 1925, seven years after the country regained its independence in the wake of World War I.

The first programme was emitted by the Polish Radiotechnical Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Radiotechniczne) from their makeshift studio in a Warsaw suburb.

''It was actually a test, but a successful one, and that is why we consider this moment as the beginning of the activity of Polish Radio,'' commented Andrzej Siezieniewski, current chairman.

The official founding of Polish Radio was on 18 August 1925.
