Torben Steno is one of the great warped minds of Danish television. Older readers might remember his take on the former GDR and the Danish left in the series DDR2 (prominently featuring ill-fitted brown suits), followed by “Den røde tråd”, an epic journey through the former Eastern Bloc (suitably made in a Tatra Limousine).
This December Steno has joined forces with sculptor and artist Kenn André Stilling to visit 24 more or less well-known monuments in Denmark (this time, dark suits and umbrellas included in the performance). As in the earlier programmes, the seemingly light approach reveals deep thoughts about the subject.
After watching the first five episodes I declare this must-see TV if you are just marginally interested in Danish history or society and understand some spoken Danish. The series homepage is here. Curiously, the individual 10-minute programmes are not available as podcasts.
