    Banijay today announces Nordisk Film TV Denmark, a Banijay Nordic label, will produce Together for Ukraine to show our support and raise money for those affected. Taking place in City Hall Square in Copenhagen on Saturday 12th March at 7:30 pm, it will be broadcast live on DR1 and TV 2.

    Utterly saddened by the horrendous situation in Ukraine, all over Denmark initiatives are being launched to support those affected. Nordisk Film TV together with DR and TV 2 now unite the nation for an evening of engagement, enlightenment, thoughtfulness and give audiences the opportunity to assist via various larger charities active in and around Ukraine. At the benefit concert, some of the best Danish musicians will perform and the viewers will have the chance to donate funds to the aid agencies both before, during and after the event.

    The concert is open to everyone and for those who don’t live near Copenhagen it will be shown on big screens across Denmark’s major cities: Aarhus, Odense, Aalborg and Esbjerg. Of course, there is always the option of watching it at home too.

    Ulrik Jørgensen, CEO of Nordisk Film TV Denmark comments: “There are no winners in a situation like this. We must do everything in our power to support the people of Ukraine and show that we are there for them. I am very proud that Nordisk Film TV, in collaboration with Denmark’s two largest broadcasters, DR1 and TV 2, will produce this important event live from Copenhagen. I view it as one of the most important productions we have ever undertaken.”

    Charlotte Slente, Secretary-General of Danish Refugee Council, and representing all organisations involved, says: “The humanitarian need of Ukraine and neighbouring countries has increased massively in the last week. At the forefront is providing basic emergency aid and making sure people have a roof over their heads. It’s amazing to see the Danes determination to help. Now, through words and music, and by raising money for the organisations working around the clock, we can show our support and solidarity.”

    Nikolaj Vitting Hermann, Head of Cross-Platform Content of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation adds: “The Ukrainians are in a horrific situation, and they need immediate aid. Here in Denmark, many are deeply affected by what is happening, and we see how Danes all over the country are launching initiatives to help. In collaboration with TV 2, the aid agencies, and the Danes, I am pleased that we can now contribute to making a difference for those in need.”

    Dorthe Thirstrup, Head of TV 2 says: “In severe situations like this, it is crucial to stand together for freedom and solidarity. Together with DR, we’d like to offer the Danes the opportunity to make a difference; by uniting for peace, or by financially supporting the aid agencies’ urgent work.”

    The concert will be the climax of a week of radio and TV programmes focusing on supporting those affected.

    Norwegian PM Erna Solberg will play against the nation in a special episode of All Against 1 on Norway’s national day, May 17th. The Høyre/conservative party leader will compete against the viewers as a usual player, solving tasks and experiments themed for the national day.

     

    All Against 1 season 3 has already succeeded in gathering Norwegian families this winter, with an average share of 53% and 817,000 viewers every Saturday. Staying on-air during the Covid-19 crisis, production made some creative adjustments in line with the new regulations and post-lockdown, the ratings went up.

     

    May 17th has always been a day where families and communities gather to walk in parades, eat lots of ice cream and play fun games like the potato run, sack race and tug of war. In this special episode, the Prime Minister will face experiments and challenges inspired by these games and even more importantly: the families can gather around the TV and still get a piece of the national day fun, regardless of the corona restrictions.

     

    Erlend Hernø Røeggen, CEO in Nordisk Film TV Norway said: “It’s great news and so exciting! Hats off to the team that managed to pull this season off against the odds, showing that it’s still possible to gather families around the TV at the weekend. The prime minister’s appearance in the show confirms the status and the strength of All Against 1even in challenging times.”

     

    All Against 1 was co-developed by Nordisk Film TV Norway and Nordisk Film TV Denmark. Banijay Rights sells the format and finished tape globally. There have been six versions of the show to date worldwide.

    TV 2 announces the commission of Denmark Stands Together, a special entertainment show from Nordisk Film TV, a Banijay Group company. Set to air on Saturday 28 March at 7.55pm, the broadcast is all about moral support and unity in this exceptional worldwide crisis.

     

    Covid-19 has forced many of us to stay home – individually. Yet, Denmark stands together. Around the country, the Danes have found new ways to help each other through the crisis, and this weekend Denmark Stands Together will help strengthen the unity in the nation via an extraordinary programme in an extraordinary situation.

     

    The episode will see hosts Natasja Crone, Puk Elgård and Anders Breinholt broadcast live from two makeshift studios, Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen being the main location. Out in the open and with six feet between them all, they will talk to well-known and unknown Danes who are doing something special in these unprecedented times. Sharing stories from all over the country, there will also be the opportunity to say “thank you” to the many who are making a difference in the country right now.

     

    “In recent weeks, TV 2’s focus and public service efforts have naturally been about delivering the Danes news and information about the guidelines we must follow. Now it must also be about saying thank you for being there when it really counts – and for keeping your head up and standing together in these difficult times,” says TV 2’s program director, Lotte Lindegaard, in a public statement, and continues: “Although we cannot physically gather, we need something to bring us together. At TV 2, we will – in our own way – open the closed doors. It is important that we forge a bond between ourselves at home and the many who deserve great thanks for their efforts when they care for the sick and the old, when they help the vulnerable in everyday life, or when they pick up our trash, complete store jobs, and generally make society work.”

     

    With music, greetings and thanks, the show will bring live “at-home” Danish performances from major Danish artists, to highlight that Denmark Stands Together. Greetings also come from a number of well-known personalities, while Danes at home can join the conversation via Skype.

     

    The show will be produced by Nordisk Film TV, makers of TV 2’s daily current affairs show, Good Morning Denmark, and supported by other producers from TV 2 ECHO, as well as TV 2’s Sports Editorial Team.
