Television series ‘Borgen’ has been named the best international series for 2012 by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).

The win marks the second year running a Danish series has earned the award. Last year, the award went to crime drama 'The Killing', which had been nominated in the same category again this year.

Both ‘The Killing’ and ‘Borgen’, a fictional political drama about Denmark’s first female prime minister, were shown this year on British television in their original language.

‘Borgen’ won over American series 'Modern Family' and Australia’s ‘The Slap’.
