Originally produced in ten parts by DR, Denmark's national broadcaster, this radio spin-off of 'Borgen' is set against the backdrop of the first series of the television drama which followed the unlikely emergence of Birgitte Nyborg as the country's new prime minister. Both series have at their centre the Danish parliament, nicknamed Borgen - 'the castle'. While the TV drama focuses on the politicians, the radio drama is set in the world of the civil service. Both share the same soundtrack composed by Halfdan E.
