The web portal provides an insight into the variety of audio-visual source material contained in the archival collections catalogued by the Archives of Rural History. The digitised film material is arranged either by topic – such as "labour", "milk" or "animals" - or by specific institutions that have produced a significant number of films.

Archives of the Short Wave Service

During the Second World War, short wave radio was Switzerland’s preferred means for communicating with its expatriated citizens and to present its positions to the rest of the world. swissinfo.ch, the successor to Swiss Radio International (SRI), now has access to the manuscripts of programmes broadcast by the Short Wave Service (SWS) between 1939 and 1945.

These archives have been digitalised and are now accessible to researchers and the public via an online database.
