Tom Carstensen

Very experienced all round journalist with 12 years experience - most at Danish Broadcasting Corporation  - equivalent to BBC in Denmark. Worked for DR's "Deadline" (similar to Newsnight) for four years and "Orientering" - similar to BBC Radio 4 - for seven years. Still working for Orientering part time. But can't get tied down so about 2/3 of the time - been freelancing for 10 years. Need new challenges every day. 

Worked for two years as London Correspondent for Orientering and SBS Broadcasting. 

In the past seven years I have done lots of radio and TV live reporting  Danish Media and BBC, Canadian Broadcasting Corp, CBS Radio, Fox News, RTE (Irish TV and Radio) and Al Jazeera. 

Currently work for Orientering and do a football podcast as well as work for two national papers. Also directing a TV doc for DR2 (similar to BBC2) on an emerging nationalist party Nye Borgerlige. They look quite secure in entering Danish Parliament in the next elections. 

I have covered Danish society from top to bottom. At the top of society I have reported from parliament and on the Danish royal family.  I am the leading journalist in Denmark when it comes to nationalism in Europe and I am finishing a book now on the subject where I have intreviewed key persons from Front National, Golden Dawn, UKIP, Sweden Democrats, Vlaams Belang, NPD, Sinn Fein, Republican Sinn Fein, SNP, Lega Nord to name just some of them. I have written a book on hooliganism in Denmark and Europe as well.

BA in Journalism at University of Southern Denmark, January 2006. The Danish journalism education is designed in a way that you’re a fully trained journalist when you get the BA degree. On top of being trained extensively in written journalism, radio and TV the journalism studies at University of Southern Denmark are very academic and focus on many subjects such as sociology, economy and political science.

39 years old with a five-year-old daughter.
