My 1864 collection will no longer be updated. Did you enjoy the collection. Take my my poll. Thank you to everyone who viewed the collection, posted comments and added plus ones. To continue the collection risks adding poor quality content and that is unfair to the viewer of this collection. I have learned so much about Denmark through managing this collection and I hope you did as well. If you enjoyed this collection or if you did not let me know in the poll below. Feel free to give feedback by leaving a comment.

The Russian Revolution at the British Library. I went today. My video will give you a flavour of the exhibition.

Good news. I will start posting again to this popular history collection. Rather than start a new collection I want to build on the foundations of this collection dedicated to an important year in Danish history.

The focus will be on International History. Big themes, revolutions and events.

From the Danish production company Miso Film who worked on 1864 watch out for 'The Rain' on Netflix. It will be the first time a Scandanavian drama has had its global premiere on Netflix.

Easy to forget but Tom Buk- Swienty the author of the book that inspired the TV series is a journalist first and some would say a historian second. Here is a book he wrote about the reporter Jacob Riis.

Before 1864 drama Sidse Babett Knudsen had never done a period drama before. In it she plays 'Sidse Babett Knudsen plays Johanna L. Heiberg, the ‘Grand Lady’ of Danish theatre'. Seen below standing on top of the 'Chairman of the Danish Council of Ministers (played by Nicholas Bro)'

It would be fair to say not all Danes liked the 1864 series on TV. The series was attacked mainly from the right of politics "“The right wing said we were rewriting history. They thought it was an attack on them. The Danes, like the British, feel we are the best"
