The King's Choice



The King's Choice


Monday 5 August 8.30pm Channel 039

The King’s Choice is based on the true story about the dramatic days in April 1940 where the King of Norway is presented with an unimaginable ultimatum by the German armed forces – surrender or die! With Nazi soldiers hunting them down, the Royal Family is forced to flee the capital. The Crown Princess leaves with her children to seek refuge in Sweden whilst the King and the Crown Prince flee to hide in a small farming area.  After three days of desperately trying to avoid the Germans, the King makes his final decision – he refuses to capitulate – even if it costs him, his family and many Norwegians, their lives. Starring Jesper Christensen, Anders Baasmo Christensen & Karl Marcovics.
