Earlier this month, Roel Philips had an interview with Søren Therkelsen, Commissioning Editor of the Eurovision Song Contest anniversary show Congratulations. Søren works for the Danish broadcaster DR, host broadcaster of the anniversary event, which takes place on 22nd October in Copenhagen. The second part of the interview will be published early next week.

“Except from a short period in the late sixties and the beginning of the seventies, Denmark has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest almost from the beginning and all the way through to today. In that way, the Eurovision Song Contest has become an institution in the minds of most Danes”, Søren tells us. “For most Danes the contest is something that has always been there, a competition and a TV-show that is must-see-TV. For DR, hosting the anniversary show of the Eurovision Song Contest is a great honour”, the Commissioning Editor added.
