The new contract for public service broadcasting between the Danish Ministry of Culture and broadcaster DR emphasises the importance of Christianity, while the word 'integration' has been removed.
The contract, which was published on the ministry's website yesterday as DR announced implementation of budget cuts including up to 400 job losses, will be the basis for significant changes at the broadcaster in coming years.
In the 20-page agreement, smaller details as to what DR will and will not be allowed to do are also given.
These include a restriction on publishing long-form written journalism on its website as well as demands on content.
The new contract states that DR's programming must make it clear that "(Danish) society is based on democracy and has its roots in Christianity".
