Thursday 6 April 2017 | 14:13 CET | News
Norwegian national broadcaster NRK has announced the return of its 'Slow TV' service, this time following reindeer herding in northern Norway. From 21 to 27 April, it will show live, fly-on-the-wall coverage as a flock of about 1,500 moves through the mountain plateau of Finnmark County, on its way to summer pastures on the coast 100 kilometres away. It will air around the clock continuously for the week.
