Documentary film about Ribe

Danish TV have several broadcastings from Ribe during Ribe’s 1300th anniversary. Most of them will of course be in Danish – but our foreign guests may enjoy the pictures
The film is produced by TVSyd and shows Ribe’s nature (12 min):

Here are some of the subjects mentioned and shown: Ribe River (Ribe Å) and the boat Johanne Dan at Skibbroen, Ribe Waterway Lock (Kammerslusen), storm surges (stormfloder), and the water level as tall as a man inside Ribe Cathedral (Ribe Domkirke) during the worst storm surge in history, the marshland and Wadden Sea (Vadehavet) and its wildlife and migration birds – also the several thousand starlings that “dance” and are making fascinating formations in the air every spring and autumn. In Denmark we call it Sort Sol (Black sun)

The first of February you can see all 3 TVSyd’s films about Ribe on: this link

  1. Jeg var paa besok i Ribe i tidlig 50aarene and fell in love with your city. Under mitt besok kjopte jeg et messing- segl som sitter i rund ekeholder som er 7cm i diameter. Jeg trodde det var seglet for Ribe. Motivet er en som sitter i en portal med et barn paa fanget. Under er en love som er paa alle fire. Ligner en av lovene paa Danmark’s Code of arms. Hva er dette seglet copiert etter. Var det en som i gamle tider stjal et segl og beriket sig overdette? Hva er historien om denne mannen? Unskyld “norsken” jeg emigrerte fra Norge til USA i Mars of 1959. Er det mulig aa finne ut om alt dette?
    Jeg katolgerer alle ting jeg har som er av interesse og laver meg et lite privat “Museum” for mine barn og barnebarn. Paa forhaand takk for hjelpen!
