Slow burning telly in Norway


When I was a kid , there was this channel that showed a fireplace at the end of the program day – yes, I’m that old. I was intrigued when a read about a whole 12 hour show on firewood. That’s a 4 hour show followed by eight hour of a live fireplace. Just to show how interested Norwegians are in fireplace, the Daily Mail reports that the channel received over 60 sms complaining that the bark was the wrong way! I guess this interest underlines not only a yearning in Norwegians for simpler times, but also a closeness to nature that other people don’t feel.
