Brilliant slow tv. Yes I prefer it without the music. Just the gentle clanking of reindeer bells
(for about a week).
NRK (Norwegian broadcasting) is televising and live streaming the reindeer migration (reinflytting – excellent word!) in the far north of Norway, all day, every day, until the reindeer arrive wherever it is they are going. Probably take about a week … along the way there are musical interludes, but, though some of the pieces are lovely, the natural sound is even better. When the music is playing I can leave the screen burbling in the corner, but once it goes silent I can’t look away.
At the moment the reindeer group which is being followed is having a little snooze. If you would like to watch them having a little snooze for an hour or so, this is the link:
Oooo – I think a couple of them may have woken up … and yes … noses to the north it is.
