'Stafetten' (The Baton) is a weekly recurring program at the local broadcasting station TV2 BORNHOLM portraying local people living on the isle of Bornholm. The baton was given to Martin Thaulow, who decided to challenge the format of the TV-concept by inviting himself into the homes of total strangers in the small community where he lives. In the living rooms of the strangers Martin gives his own personal interview and in return for the generosity of those opening their homes he takes a portrait of them.
