A Child of Denmark

Borgen, Series 3 Episode 1 of 30

Two and a half years after Danish prime minister Birgitte Nyborg called a general election, she has left the political arena and is now a well-paid speaker in business circles and sits on several boards. Following the divorce from her husband, Birgitte and her children are in the process of moving house. Her old friend and mentor Bent Sejro is disillusioned with the political situation in Denmark and the compromises the Moderate Party are making with the new government, and he tries to persuade Birgitte to re-enter politics.

Meanwhile, the new management at the TV station are keen to focus on positive stories and chasing ratings, causing problems for the head of news, Torben Friis.
