Some of the story of the Danish radio factories' path into television is inspired by the personal story of engineer Herman Høedholt. In the winter of 1950 he built a television as an experiment while working for the radio factory Linnet & Laursen. At the Copenhagen radio fair that same year his set was declared the best of the exhibited models. He later started his own television factory, Larsen & Høedholt, with an associate. See more »
Episode 1.7: When Frøken Jørgensen exits Aage Haslund's room
she explains to Hr. Stoklund that Haslund works for 'Statsradiosofien'. The correct name is 'Statsradiofonien' - literally 'the State Radiophony'. Since Frøken Jørgensen is in a somewhat frisky mood at the time, it is not unlikely that the mistake was deliberate. See more »
Krønikken starts were Matador, the immortal Danish TV classic, ended. While it does not reach Matador's level, it certainly is an important contribution that vividly describes the culture of the Danish society from the postwar period, to the beginning of the modem times.
Unlike Matador, Krønikken, (the Chronicle) takes place in Copenhagen, and not in a province town; therefore its focus is a little narrower, and it has more supporting characters that are only seen in a few episodes. Its primary focus is the capitalistic family, whose patriarch owns the radio, and later, TV factory Bella, but it also has a strong focus on the development of the Danish social democratic party. This is because, that the Social Democrat was the primary architect for the modem Danish welfare state, which was created in this period.
It is a story, but it describes the history of that period better, then mere facts ever could.
If you are interested in the Danish culture, then Krønikken, is a must see.
