Prince Joachim was honored by KLF, Kirke & Medier for his documentary series!
Here, the Prince made some thematic impacts in Danish history, and in the six half-hour programs, Prince Joachim looked more closely at Danish faith, democracy, school, borders, laws and symbols - one broadcast on each topic.
Many viewers were excited about the programs, and so is the media user organization KLF, Church & Media, which has now honored Prince Joachim for the program series. KLF has done this with the 'Bouquet', which has been distributed to media persons over the past 18 years, which they believe has 'made a special effort'.
In the program series 'Prince Joachim tells' we meet Prince Joachim as a committed, insightful and knowledgeable communicating host. The Prince obviously has a great deal of knowledge about the themes of the individual programs and manages to make them both relevant and accessible. The series is a good example of high-quality public service programs with great, popular appeal, says General Secretary of KLF, Church & Media, Mikael Arendt Laursen.
Viewers were allowed to experience Prince Joachim as a host who could both tell the good story while reflecting on the role of his own and his family.
Prince Joachim calls it an honor to receive the 'Bouquet', and His Royal Highness adds that he is beyond love with history.
- "I am completely obsessed with history and like to tell about it. It is one of the cornerstones for understanding ourselves and the society we live in today"
, says Prince Joachim, who during the production of the series, for example, was a newsreader on DR Zealand.
Prince Joachim himself tells KLF that some of the highlights from the program series were the admissions at Roskilde Cathedral and at the Jelling Stones.
- "It was very present for me to be in Roskilde Cathedral, because I know my ancestors better than others who come there. There is a bigger dimension, and I noticed that especially at the Jelling stones. It was a very big moment. 'Denmark starts!' That's what I felt. There was something metaphysical about it"
, Prince Joachim notes.
The Prince was narrator and organizer, while Anna von Lowzow was a producer on the series 'Prince Joachim Narrator', which Nordisk Film Production produced for DR. The series can still be seen on DRTV. The program series was also featured by Queen Margrethe in Her Majesty's New Year's Speech on December 31, where the Queen said:-… At the same time, I have enjoyed being able to follow his tales about Denmark's history on television. I probably thought he would be good at that.
Prince Joachim and the team behind the programs have another chance to receive an award for the broadcasts later this month, when Billed-Bladet awards its TV Gold on February 28. Here 'Prince Joachim tells' nominated in the category 'New TV program of the year' - in competition with DR1's series about Prince Joachim's grandfather, Frederik IX, as well as the program series 'DNA', 'Ingemann and the West Coast' and Melvin Kakooza's 'Totally Black' from Tv2 play.
