Norway Takes It Slow

17-1

A few years ago, I posted a story on the Norwegian Broadcasting Company’s longest, slowest television show. Viewers in Norway—and geeks like me around the world—were riveted to their screens for the non-stop, 134 hour-long telecast of the Hurtigruten boat trip up the nation’s coast to the Arctic Circle. In recent years, Norwegian TV has broadcast exciting Slow-TV shows on hot topics such as knitting, firewood, and fishing. Now fans of Slow-TV can get their fix anytime on Netflix, which is offering all of these shows, although some are actually edited, including the complete 7 hour train ride from Bergen to Oslo on the wonderful Bergensbanen.
