The Office de Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française (ORTF) was the national agency charged, between 1964 and 1974, to provide public radio and television in France.
In France, the public monopoly on broadcasting was established in 1945 when the Radiodiffusion française (RDF) was formed.
From the beginning, the public broadcaster experienced fierce competition from the "peripheral stations": French-speaking stations aimed at the French public but transmitting on long wave from neighbouring countries, such as RadioMontecarlo (RMC)from Monaco, Radio Luxembourg / RTL from Luxembourg
On August 8 1974, the ORTF was split into 7 institutions:
The Conseil supérieur de l'audiovisuel is an independent administrative authority that was created by the Law of January 17th, 1989 to guarantee broadcasting freedom in the conditions laid down by the modified Law of September 30th, 1986.Nine Conseillers are nominated for a period of six years by presidential decree.
