Borgen: The Complete First Season DVD
The first season of the Danish drama following a female politician's rise to power and the way in which her role as prime minister alters her behaviour.
Birgitte Nyborg Christensen (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is elected to power on the back of her winning combination of idealism and determination.
However, once in place as Denmark's first female leader, will she find that the demands of power force her to compromise or alter her perspective?
Her chief source of guidance is spin doctor Kasper Juul (Johan Philip Asbæk), who has to contend with the likes of pushy news anchor Katrine Fønsmark (Birgitte Hjort Sorensen), emblem of the controversy-hungry media Birgitte must alternatively court and hold at bay.
The episodes comprise: 'Decency in the Middle', 'Count to 90', 'The Art of Possible', '100 Days', 'Men Who Love Women', 'State Visit', 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil', 'The Silly Season', 'Divide and Rule' and 'The First Tuesday in October'.
