Since 1963, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs French (the famous "Quai d'Orsay") showed very favourable to the establishment of emissions abroad deferred, in addition to live broadcasts in other languages by the ORTF. They were programs recorded in the form of vinyl this Ministry would distribute from French embassies to local stations in the eligible countries.
These programmes were forcibly characteristics different from those issued live. At the level of content, it would develop in accordance with local regulations of censorship, which meant the Elimination of the elements most blatantly political. He opted for a programming focused on French cultural propaganda, in the broad sense (such as fashion, sports, cinema, literature, history, humor ), with themes that not lose current and fresh despite the obvious problems of distribution and apparent delays between the recording of the same and its broadcast in the recipient countries.
Emissions in deferred likewise offer other advantages: broadcast quality was far superior to that of the system of shortwave, and also programmes reached legally more people, because in dictatorial regimes and the Spanish was forbidden to listen to ideologically dissident political propaganda (Radio Paris always was in his sights), to exist at the same time sufficient technical means to sabotage any broadcast on short wave.
For emissions deferred in Castilian, and attending exclusively cultural reasons, there were programmes designed to Spain and others to Latin America (usually produced by journalists and announcers Spanish or Latin depending on the case) with a third group of mixed nature.
The foundation of the House of the Radio in December of the same year (1963) was an important step in this direction. We thus collect a fragment of the speech of President De Gaulle during the inauguration of the building:
"(...) Dans cette vie de société qu’instituent désormais entre les citoyens et entre les pays, tant et tant de communications, il s’agit que la France apparaisse comme elle est, je veux dire aux prises avec ses peines et ses problèmes, mais vivant pleinement son siècle, dans un grand effort de progrès, et bienveillante à l’égard de tous les peuples de la terre. Car, si la réalité d’un fait ou d’un moment particulier peut prendre parfois les traits du doute, de l’amertume et de la division, la vérité totale et profonde de la France, c’est la foi, l’espoir et la fraternité. Telle doit être l’inspiration de notre radio française".
