Access to RTS archives

Grab all audio and video metadata of RTS broadcasts since 1931.

Program collections

Episodes of series are bundled together to get the data in one package. Programs that changed names through time are interlinked for easier access.

Link to online broadcast

If a broadcast is available online, the service returns its link to you.

Why use It?

Use this API when you need metadata of any RTS audio/video broadcast from 1931 to present days. You can search in the Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) archives and get the metadata of a series bundled together.

How it works?

Required data comes from three distinct systems: RTS Website CMS, TV Archives System and Radio Archives System. The documents in the responses contain the programs’ meta-data. If the same program is available both in the archives and in the CMS that results in multiple documents. When possible, variants of the same document are linked through the `variantIds` array.
