The Danish Design Museum in Copenhagen has just produced three podcasts in English as an introduction to Danish design. Click on the image here or on the link below to go to the page on the Designmuseum Danmark site.
These podcasts provide a really good general introduction to the history and to the evolution of modern design in Denmark and some context with a short history of the museum itself and an introduction to the teaching of design. Excellent if you are preparing to visit the museum or equally good if, following a visit, you are looking to understand more.
I hope this is a first step and they will publish more on line - podcasts and videos - because the design museum has excellent historic films and an archive of material produced for exhibitions that are important asa source for more information and as a starting point for further research.
