Schweiz aktuell (literally "Switzerland today") is the title of a current affairs show on German-speaking Swiss public channel SRF 1. Started in 1981 as DRS aktuell, Schweiz aktuell is since 1991 broadcast from 19:00 to 19:25 from Monday to Friday on SRF 1 and repeated on SRF info.

Background and contents[edit]

Schweiz aktuell reports daily and up to date on the major cantonal, regional and local issues and events, covering all parts of the country and showing Switzerland in all its diversity. In the choice of themes, editors pay attention to the relevance and on substantive and regional diversity, i.e. regional news and stories that have exemplary character and are of national interest. In addition to the usual contribution and news forms, live reports of the current locales and live interviews, usually in Swiss German, with domestic correspondents form its distinctive characteristic style, intentially to provide cohesion between the Swiss linguistic regions and to strengthen the cultural values of the country.[2]

The posts are produced daily, focus on regional stories and special events; p.e. in August 2014 a historical documentary television series focussed on a fictional family and their weaving company, living in summer 1914 in the Tösstal valley, or a documentary of the cadet's life in a Swiss police academy in October 2014, or background information about the Wauwilermoos internment camp during World War II.[3][4]

Just a handful of Swiss television programs of the national Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen SRF broadcast in Swiss German instead of the Swiss Standard German language, among them Schweiz aktuell, and partially 10vor10, but just in live interviews.
