The Northern Railway - Slow TV


Slow down and share the moment with the world.

Norwegian public broadcaster NRK started the Slow revolution five years ago, by simply covering a complete seven hour train ride… in real time. Following the 2009 train ride, the country experienced a record breaking 134 hour, non-stop transmission in 2011, which followed a ships journey along the Norwegian coast.

It was a bold move from a public broadcaster, a clever stunt that baffled the viewers as much as the local press. It didn’t take long for the magic of the experience to fascinate the audience, who couldn’t stop watching, tweeting and sharing the moment with the world.

This programme takes a condensed look at the very same train journey.
