Krønikens stork

Translated title of the contribution: The Stork of The Chronicle

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleCommunication


The Chronicle, the Danish TV drama series, is evaluated in the light of Matador, its great predecessor. The Chronicle is built on the same principles, but rather melodramatic in genre. Historical TV drama appeals to our common national identity and assists drawing a pattern in the past, in which the present can mirror itself. Alluding to Isak Dinesen, this pattern manifests itself as a stork.
