Win ‘The Borgen Experience’ & ‘Borgen’ Trilogy DVD


Enter our competition and take home the best that Borgen has to offer!

We are giving away a copy of The Borgen Experience: Creating TV Drama the Danish Way, signed by the author and series producer Camilla Hammerich, together with the complete award-winning series of Borgen (2010-2013) on DVD to two lucky winners.

Borgen may be over but its fictional policies reflected in reality are still as prevalent as ever, combined with an international appeal which has grown even stronger. In Camilla Hammerich’s exclusive look at the creation of the hit series, The Borgen Experience explores the whirlwind journey of making the fast-paced drama, working with the distinguished cast and crew, as well as finding out the essence that has made Borgen the global sensation it is.

Read our interview with Camilla Hammerich here.

The series captured our attention with the intricate and turbulent political narrative, with a similar momentum and prestige to The West Wing (1999-2006) with the duplicitous tactics of House of Cards (2013- ). Over its three season arc we have followed Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) and her rises and falls, victories and defeats as she strives to transform the Danish government by forging a future of promise for the Danish people.


To be in for a chance of winning these fantastisk prizes, can you answer the following question?

As well as featuring familiar faces from The Killing (2007-2012), Borgen first united a host of Danish actors from DR’s historical drama 1864 (2014), including Sidse Babett Knudsen, Pilou Asbæk, Søren Malling and Lars Mikkelsen. Which other 1864 star had a small role as a young developer at TV1 in season three?
