"...Danmarks Radio is a state monopoly for radio and television, run by a Radio Council (Board) with twenty-two members appointed by parliament and five nominated by viewers and listeners' associations. DR is scrupulous in ensuring equal time in elections to all parties, of whatever size, that are participating, but at other times its "uncommitted" BBC style has tended to prevent minority expression and has meant that in reality it has been an instrument of the four "old" parties which dominated the Radio Council."
