Well, that's an official pad on the shoulder from the "cultural-segment." He can't be displeased with that!
I only watched the first part (as I found the topic too broad for such a compressed coverage) but from what I hear it had a broad public appeal. History documentaries usually have here in DK, the series about Frederik IX was also huge success.
From what I understand the appeal was indeed very much down to Joachim. He is a fine narrator, as he speaks clearly and is used to addressing an audience. But it was more down to him being genuinely interested in the topic and asking the relevant questions to the relevant people - and allowing them to talk. Something many hosts and journalists tend to forget.
That is, that it's not about them, but about what whoever they are talking to is saying. (*)
It is IMO usually interesting to listen to someone, who is burning for a subject, but who at the same time can tell about the very same subject without sounding like a nerd. And that's where I get the impression that Joachim hit the mark.
So I think we are going to see more of Joachim on TV.
Because it worked! Joachim also seem to have been bitten by the documentary-bug and networks and producers do think in viewer ratings.
It also makes me reconsider my pet-theory that J&M will settle in France. They still might, but for me the pendulum is now swinging in the opposite direction. Because Joachim has found a purpose with his life, to replace what else he was going to do, now that he will gradually fade away as a primary royal. To be replaced by first Christian and I'm convinced Isabella as well.
- Apart, of course from his military engagement. He may remain an officer of the reserves. But being a full colonel he can't advance any further, unless he becomes a career officer. (If he goes professional I will predict he will become brigadier within a year or two.)
But I can also imagine Joachim being attached to the Defense Command or the Ministry of Defense or the staff school at the Military Academy as a civilian consultant. Or remain in France/Belgium for a couple of years in connection with NATO, or being the main Danish liaison officer in France, vis a vis the increasing military co-operation between France and DK.
(*) The outside DK, practically unknown TV-host and journalist Søren Ryge, is a master in that respect! He also has an uncanny ability to find ordinary people, with ordinary lives and make them extraordinarily interesting. Hence why his programs are so popular and continue to be interesting, even 20-30 years later.
