Copenhagen is a 2002 British television film by director Howard Davies from Michael Frayn's 1998 Tony Award-winning play of the same name.


The story concerns a meeting between the physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg in Copenhagen in 1941, and probes Heisenberg's role in the German atomic bomb program during World War II.


Copenhagen starred Stephen Rea as Bohr, Daniel Craig as Heisenberg, and Francesca Annis as Margrethe Bohr.


The film was produced by BBC Fictionlab for BBC Four, in association with KCET.


The film was first broadcast on BBC Four on 26 September 2002, preceded by a prologue with Frayn, and followed by an epilogue by Michio Kaku and a documentary on the historical events. It was broadcast in the United States on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Public television.
