P1 is a national radio channel produced by the Swedish public broadcaster Sveriges Radio.

P1, which subtitles itself "The spoken channel" (Den talade kanalen), is the principal radio channel in Sweden for:

  • news
  • community programmes
  • culture
  • radio drama
  • debate
  • science
  • philosophy
  • the expression of opinion
  • international issues

The channel is transmitted continuously from 5.29 each day (5.55 on Saturdays and Sundays) until around 1.30 the following morning. Many programmes are repeated at least once, at a different time of day, during each broadcast week: this is a typical feature of spoken-word channels of this type (compare BBC Radio 4 in the United Kingdom, Radio National in Australia).

P1 can be heard in Sweden on FM and DAB, also worldwide via the internet. Part of the P1 schedule is also relayed by the Radio Sweden 1 satellite channel.

Originally P1 was an abbreviation of Program 1, or Programme 1 in English. This is however no longer the case and the channel is formally called P1.
