On the request of the 1974 Swedish Broadcasting Committee this study of the Swedish television´s international reporting was made during the autumn of 1975 and the spring of 1976. The aim of the study was to examine the international reporting from the viewpoint of the rules for the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation in the radio legislation and the agreement between the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation and the state, however not to examine single programs or series of programs but rather to examine the whole international reporting during a longer period to be able to give a more general characteristic of it.
