To mark the occasion, the station, which broadcasts in six languages, is treating its listeners to a day of special anniversary programmes.

These include interviews with special guests, stories from years past and unique recordings from the public broadcaster’s extensive archives.

During the last 85 years, with a break for World War II, Radio Poland, also known as Polish Radio’s External Service (Polskie Radio dla Zagranicy), has kept its listeners informed and up-to-date on key events shaping the life of the nation.

The station provides listeners around the world with comprehensive and regularly updated information about Poland and highlights key international issues from a Polish perspective.

The station formally began broadcasting on March 1, 1936, targeting its programming at the Polish diaspora and Poles abroad.

After the fall of communism in the late 1980s, the station was restructured and geared toward objective and comprehensive news coverage.

Today, Radio Poland broadcasts in Polish and five foreign languages: English, German, Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian.

As it celebrates its 85th birthday, Radio Poland is offering a range of special broadcasts on March 1.

The English section is retracing its history, illustrating it with archival material.

The German desk is sharing some of its oldest sound files retrieved from Polish Radio’s audio archives.

Meanwhile, the Russian section is airing a special anniversary programme featuring former and current staff members talking about the history of the station, its mission, achievements and day-to-day challenges as well as the tricks of the trade.

The Polish section is airing interviews with Radio Poland’s Director Andrzej Rybałt and Jan Dziedziczak, a government minister in charge of relations with the Polish community abroad.

The Belarusian section is offering an interview with Prof. Nina Barszczewska, who helped create the unit and led it from 1992 to 2018.

The Ukrainian section is sharing reminiscences from former journalists and stories told by those who produce its programming.

Join us as we celebrate our milestone.

Be sure to tune in today.
