The history of Yle Radio Finland and the domestic foreign language Capital FM (Mondo). The site has no formal connection with Yle.

News production at Radio Finland was administratively independent of the domestic Yle radio and tv newsrooms. Thus, while making full use of the domestic output. it  was possible to break away from the domestic news agenda, when, for example, it was was dominated  with the  labour market situation.
