Frederik IX - Drama-documentary about Denmarks King Frederik IX.

The series in five parts will be shown on 1. January 2020 and the following Sundays.

It follows Frederik IX from 1912 until his death in 1972.
The drama-documentary is based on four interviews with Queen Margrethe as well a dramatized episodes from Frederik XI's life and time.

Frederik IX has been selected because he lived in interesting time, historically speaking. Like WWII. But also during an interesting and full transition to a full parliamentarian democracy in Denmark.
That is the gradual change enabling all citizens the right to vote.
The change from the King literally dismissing and appointing governments, with the political influence that entails, to the king formally dismissing and appointing governments.
The role of the royal family during the Occupation.
The public mood leading to the change in the Constitution that meant the QMII would become the next heir, rather than Frederik IX's brother and his family. - and no doubt the problems that entailed.
And of course the role of crown princess, later queen Ingrid, who had such an influence on both her husband but also in the role of the DRF to becoming living role models.

- On the face of it, it sounds very interesting and it will, I think, also be a indirect portrait of QMII in particular.

The series will be aired on DR1, which means people outside DK will be able to see it live, or at least later on from the DR1 archive.

ADDED: They have changed the dates in the article, so the post has been updated.

It looks really interesting, especially the parts about the transition from executive monarchy to ceremonial monarchy, the German occupation and the 1953 act of succession. Unfortunately it is inaccessible to us outside Denmark ( or perhaps Norway and Sweden) if the series is available only in Danish.
