The Anonymous Widower

Coast is in Denmark

Coast is one of my favourite telvision programs.  Today was all about Denmark.  I’ve been to the country a couple of times, although one was just to get a connection to Oslo.

My next-door neighbour at the football is also a man who has a Danish father, who had been trapped in the UK  at the start of the Second World War.

The program was about the Danish coast and agriculture, but with a fair amount of Second World War and other history thrown in. They also visited Heliogoland, which seems a fascinating place. A large part of the program was about how the Danes got most of their Jews to safety in Sweden.  They didn’t mention King Christian X, who surely became one of the unlikely heroes of the war.

I doubt many monarchs would have did what he did to give support to his people.

  1. I like Denmark. I have been there a lot, worked with Danish companies, and installed systems for Danish clients. I have also had holidays in Denmark. We are currently supplying software to a Danish company that we are installing for them in China.

  3. I don’t know if I will. Travel is rather difficult unless I can do it by train.
