The night between July 21st and 22nd, 1992 the manuscripts about "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The little Mermaid" and others was stolen from The Hans Christian Andersen Museum in Odense. They have never come back to the museum.
DR TV - similar to BBC - followed clues of the case. Three programs Sunday evenings at 20.00 didn't bring the manuscripts back. The programs talked in a nice way about Hans Christian Andersen, his life and works, but the focus was the missing fairy tales and in this way they didn’t succeed.
