The radio program "Du holde Kunst" is the longest regularly transmitted broadcast of the Austrian radio. Up to this day, it has followed an implicit concept that was basically developed when the broadcast was started in the autumn of 1945: sophisticated poems following the traditional paradigm interspersed with classical music.
The conception and implementation of a custom-made database system will enable the analysis of the program "Du holde Kunst" from a literary- and media-historical point of view.

This interdisciplinary project is created in cooperation with the Institute for German Studies of the University of Innsbruck.
