The most boring Slow TV yet?

Here's a little taster for next week's show about Slow TV on RedShift Radio. Could this be the most boring Slow TV yet?

On Thursday 16th February, I'll be broadcasting a catch-up interview with Norwegian Slow TV producers Thomas Hellum and Rune Møklebust from NRK, thinking over some of the things which make Slow TV what it is, a review of their 2016 projects and news of a couple projects for 2017.

The playlist will come from (largely) contemporary Norwegian and Scandinavian artists - some really very good music to be heard across several genres.

Listen at 8pm UK via RedShift Radio, or find it on the TuneIn app.


If you're a fan of Slow TV, or even just like it. A bit. Or just slightly curious. Well, do feel free to join the Slow TV Fans group on Facebook. Hope to see you there!

Channel 4 News understands Slow TV

Slow TV is about taking the time to tell the full story. Not about being unduly slow for the sake of being Slow. You can't fit an indepth story into accelerated soundbites.
