Norway broadcaster NRK to show 12 hours of knitting, sheep-shearing in ‘slow TV’ broadcast

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.

We’ll watch the arm of a sweater get longer and longer; it will be fascinating… but pretty strange TV — via redwolf.newsvine.com
