Germany radio culture is particularly for its complex radio play - and feature productions well-known. Heart of the program is according to self-advertisement of the transmitter since March 2005 the six-hour radio feuilleton: On workdays from 9.00 to 12,00 o'clock and from 14.00 to 17,00 o'clock is located the current happening in art, culture and science in the center. The transmissions of DLR culture are not interrupted by advertisement.

Members of this body are pool of broadcasting corporations, Second Channel of German Television and all 16 Lands of the Federal Republic.

While the program of the earlier federal broadcasting corporation Deutschlandfunk was allowed to keep its name and its program structure, in Berlin under the line of the program directress Gerda Hollunder a completely new program was placed to Germany radio Berlin on the legs -.

With the separating of the program directress to 30. April 2004 took over Dr. Günter Müchler, the director of program of the Deutschlandfunk, also the responsibility for Germany radio Berlin and began the work on a “evolutionary reform” citizens of Berlin of the program, whose listener number had remained visible up to then.

The UKW Sendernetz is developed gradually. Only in parts of East Germany DLR culture is radiated surface covering over strong UKW frequencies. In the old Lands of the Federal Republic however the range-strong frequencies were already to a large extent distributed with kind of sending.
