Description
Program Description
"DENMARK'S STAR SPANGLED 4TH is a unique program about Denmark's celebration of America's Independence Day, a tradition that began in 1912 and has continued for more than 70 years. Thousands of Danes, Americans of Danish descent and Americans participate in the largest celebration of America's Independence Day outside the United States. The half-hour documentary covers the events of the week long festival. It is a tapestry of simplicity and splendor, patriotism and pathos, telling the story of how and why there is this bond of friendship between the two nations. "KRMA-TV believes the documentary merits Peabody consideration because it promotes international understanding. Although the program is not issue oriented, the theme of friendship, not visual or tangible, is important during these times when the United States is being severely criticized throughout the world. Foremost, DENMARK'S STAR SPANGLED 4TH is an excellent example of stirring patriotism -- from the heart comes the love of country, fatherland and homeland. "We hoped that as a result of producing a television special many more people in the United States and Denmark would be aware and proud of this unique celebration of American heritage and our lasting friendship with Denmark. The program was accepted for nationwide distribution by PBS, the Public Broadcasting System. We know that 261 public television stations broadcast DENMARK'S STAR SPANGLED 4TH. The program also was aired in Denmark on July 3, 1985 and will be distributed throughout Europe by the Danish broadcasting system."--1985 Peabody Awards entry form.
