--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------the TV chef: We had full redigeringsret
At Nordisk Film TV rejects creative director, Ulrik Chr. Jørgensen, that the production company has given acquisition at their free redigeringsret to DR3-documentary.
- The agreement has been entered into a completely normal and it equals with the agreements, we also have made of similar nature, for example with the Royal family, says Ulrik Chr. Jørgensen Extra Magazine.
- The requirements stated in the bl.a., that smoking breaks should be omitted, and that the recordings should be deleted. How much is it done?
- I do not actually know whether there are smoking breaks, that have been deleted, or if you completely failed to film there. But there is nothing in the agreement that we have made, which is uncommon, or in any way changed on that at all times we had full redigeringsret.
- a summary Of the meeting, it appears that Jacob Bruun was greatly dissatisfied with the recordings and bl.a. thought, that the word 'power' was said too much. Have you felt that the prime minister's office attempted to interfere in the areas in the genesis of the program?
- There is no doubt that Jacob Bruun has spoken ift. the program at the meeting where I was not present. And it must be him free. But the example with the word 'power' in the intro is very good. We have just held to use the word 'power' on the prime minister, which is the most powerful man in the country.
Also DR3-editor Trine Skovgaard, denies having made redigeringsret to the prime minister's office.
- In connection with 'An uncommon life', it was never the intention to make a revealing political documentary, but rather a program about Denmark's prime minister different life (...) In this context, it is quite normal procedure to let the cast have something to say in relation to the framework for the filming, and set personal limits along the way, and not in conflict with the ethical guidelines for the redigeringsretten, she writes in an email to Ekstra Bladet.
