I assume it is not pledge week in Norway. The BBC reports that Norway’s NRK broadcasts 12-hour wood burning programme
It may be a slow burner but will it fire up the audience? Norwegian public TV is broadcasting a programme showing a crackling fireplace – for 12 hours.
The NRK woodathon features firewood specialists providing commentary and advice on subjects such as chopping, stacking and burning the wood.
The transmission, entitled Hel Ved, also features music and poetry.
They obviously believe in educational television at NRK, but this is a bit extreme for my tastes. The thought of a group of Vikings gathering around a television and taking notes on wood chopping techniques caused me to think of this video, for some reason.
