Hoping to take
slow TV to a new level, Norway’s public broadcaster will air 12 hours of knitting from Friday night, complete with needle tips and a how-to on knitting a cover for a Harley Davidson motorbike.
Broadcaster NRK, a veteran in quirky programming, will also feature an attempt to break a world sheep-shearing record currently held by an Australian shearing group.
We’ll dive deep into the world of knitting, then from midnight, we’ll turn down the pace, if that’s even possible, Rune Moeklebust, a producer for public television NRK, said.
