Almost as boring as a lawyer’s office…
From Huffington Post 16/02/13:
Brits have got the hots for slow-burning Scandinavian drama, from The Killing, to Borgen, to The Bridge, but the latest hot offering from Norwegian state TV might not see any takers here - a 12 hour broadcast of a burning log fire.
The NRK programme, described by the channel's head of programming Rune Moeklebust as "slow but noble television, will be a continuous shot of the wood burning - to capture the age-old entertainment of staring at a log fire.
I hear the BBC have commissioned two similar styles of show as part of their flagship Saturday night schedule. One consists of a camera trained on a freshly painted wall so viewers can watch it dry. The other sees a camera trained on a lawyer working at his desk.
I think the Norwegian log fire version wins every time.
