“Gerhard Schröder head of NDR and Radio Breman”

To clarify any potential misunderstanding, it should be noted that NDR and Radio Bremen are not a single organisation, but two different broadcasting organisations covering different, but overlapping, geographical areas.

Schröder was head of NDR from 1961 – 1973

and head of Radio Bremen from 1974 – 1985
