Our entertainment programmes are a showcase for Switzerland – a Switzerland with wide-ranging interests and strong values. We entertain people with unmistakably Swiss content, which is why we place a great deal of emphasis on our own productions.
We spend CHF 367.5 million on entertainment and film, which amounts to 23 % of our budget. 85 % of this expenditure goes on our own entertainment programmes and the remaining 15 % is put towards those produced externally (figures from 2016).
This investment has paid off, with up to a million viewers tuning in to the historical two-parter «Gotthard». SRG’s most expensive TV film production to date, it tells the story of the construction of the railway tunnel through the Saint-Gotthard Massif from 1872 onwards – an epic feat of Swiss engineering.
Our services are supplemented by externally produced audio and video content, including feature films, documentaries and foreign series such as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Castle”.
