The Copenhagen Interpretation, direction: Lars Becker-Larsen; production: Flemming Arentoft; manuscript: Lars Becker-Larsen, and Jens Bidstrup.  The Copenhagen interpretation represents Niels Bohr's view of the decisive role of classical measuring apparatus for understanding the atomic world. The intepretation has been strongly disputed, and Einstein among others opposed it. Through a series of interviews with prominent physicists various views on the interpretation are presented.
