St. Jørgen’s Square

The musings and reflections of Jørgen

Jørgen is an institution within an institution. As head of the equipment department at a major broadcaster, his candid accounts and blunt exchanges reveal the tensions between a deep rooted work culture and the demands of present-day television production. They also point to a broader struggle in governmental institutions: maintaining the quality of the work experience for employees while delivering their challenging requests.
