Let’s skim Have a good look at the text below, but do not read it yet. Focus on bold printing, headers, pictures etc. Predict what the text is about. The text is about Slow TV: Would you watch seven hours of knitting? based on an article by Brand Barstein. 1 Slow TV – a term used to describe programmes that run for hours without much happening – has become a huge phenomenon in Norway. The first instance of it was a seven-hour train journey between Bergen and Oslo that was televised in 2009. It was viewed by 1.2 million train-loving Norwegians. Its sequel, a 134-hour long broadcast of an arctic cruise liner’s journey along the Norwegian coast, became such a hit that emergency rescuers had to use water cannons to fend off attention-seekers following the liner in smaller boats. Since then there have been several more train journeys, a national firewood night (essentially, hours of footage of wood burning) and, most recently, National Knitting Night, in which a sheep was shorn and its wool turned into a jumper over the course of 8.5 hours. 2 That these unusual programmes are so well-liked might not come as a surprise to many. To start, seventy-five percent of Norway’s population use state channel NRK’s services at some point during the day. And when you consider the country’s fascination with slow-moving winter sports, it makes sense viewers would be primed for long-form content. For decades it has been commonplace for Norway’s largest channel, NRK1, to dedicate up to nine hours every Saturday and Sunday for three consecutive months to cross-country skiing and 10,000m ice skating competitions. Rest assured, there is plenty of ‘normal’ programming on Norwegian television too: talk shows, reality shows, American sitcoms and Danish crime series. 3 Andreas Sagen is a 31-year-old web developer and a self-professed Slow TV fan who watched the 2009 seven-hour train journey twice, once live and in repeat online. He believes that the appeal of Slow TV lies in its simplicity: “It’s just something completely different than the 27 EXAM PREPARATION - GENERAL STRATEGIES - KBL
