Description: DR (from the earlier Danmarks Radio, which was the organization's name until 1996) – officially rendered into English as the Danish Broadcasting Corporation – is Denmark's national broadcasting corporation. Founded in 1925 as a public-service organization, it is today Denmark's oldest and largest electronic media enterprise. The then Danmarks Radio was one of the 23 broadcasting organizations which founded the European Broadcasting Union in 1950.DR was founded on 1 April 1925 under the name of Radioordningen, changed to Statsradiofonien in 1926, and Danmarks Radio in 1959. The abbreviated form DR has been used in official documents since 2000.During the German occupation of Denmark in World War II, radio broadcasts were censored — under particularly harsh conditions from August 1943 — leading many Danes to turn to Danish-language broadcasts from BBC or the illegal press, as well as Swedish radio in 1944–1945.Statsradiofonien's second radio station, Program 2 (P2), was added in 1951, followed by P3 in 1963. Experimental television broadcasts started in 1949, with regular programming from 1951 and daily programmes from 1954. Color television test broadcasts were started in March 1967, with the first large-scale color broadcasting occurring for the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France. Danmarks Radio officially ended "test" transmissions of color television on April 1, 1970, although it wasn't until 1978 that their last black-and-white television program (TV Avisen) switched to color.Danmarks Radio's monopoly on national television lasted until 1988, when TV 2 started broadcasting.DR added a second television channel, DR2, in August 1996.On 7 June 2007, DR added an all-day news channel, DR Update.At the Danish changeover to over-the-air digital signals on 1 November 2009, DR added three new channels to their lineupDR K, an intercultural channelDR HD, select programs from the other channels transmitted as HDDR Ramasjang, a children's channel.
