    Our Denmark as the Promised Land (Season's best)

    Today's special encore holiday episode features a documentary by The Sunday Edition's Karin Wells. "Gatekeepers To A Promised Land" looks at Denmark and how having the toughest immigration laws in the world affects workers there. Some Danes have a hard time accepting the changing face of their society as more and more foreign workers arrive to do that country's least desirable jobs. A political backlash has meant that in some cases the families of these new Danes are being broken up and, in others, badly needed foreign laborers are being discouraged from coming in the first place.
