Radio and television
Ilona Koivisto and Tiina Tuulasvaara-Kaleva

In terms of radio operation Tampere was a pioneer. A broadcasting station was set up in the attic of the telephone co-operative already in 1923. A radio association began its operation in the same year, broadcasting not only music but sermons, presentations and radio theatre as well. Due to technical reasons it was impossible to house telephone and radio operations under the same roof, so a wooden pavilion was built by the bank of the rapids to protect the equipment. The government was about to launch its own radio operation, and a radio station was built at Pyynikki lookout tower in 1930. The activities of Tampere's radio association finished with the landing of the national Yleisradio. A television club was founded in Tampere in 1957, and it joined the TES (Technical Progress Foundation). The competition with the national radio started. The operation of Tampere's own Tamvision strengthened. After disputes TES-TV became the property of Yleisradio in 1964, and at the same time TV2 was founded in Tohloppi in Tampere. TV2 created a policy of its own within Yleisradio, concentrating among others on epic scale historical series, contemporary programmes and programmes for children.
