Radiodiffusion Française

Radiodiffusion Française (RDF) was a French public institution responsible for public service broadcasting.

Created in 1944 as a state monopoly (replacing Radiodiffusion Nationale), RDF worked to rebuild its extensive network, destroyed during the war. It was replaced in 1949 by Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française (RTF).[1][2]

RDF managed four radio stations: Le Programme National (The National Program), Le Programme Parisien (The Parisian Program), Paris-Inter and Radio-Sorbonne (the latter produced by the Sorbonne University).[1] Also, it managed the TV channel RDF Télévision française.
