Slow TV: Train Ride Bergen to Oslo

Post by Turdacious » Sun Aug 07, 2016 4:04 pm

Norwegian documentary where the filmmakers put a camera on the front of the train running from Bergen to Oslo. It's 7.5 hours long, available on Netflix, and all you hear is the train (and occasionally the conductor talking in Norwegian). I can't explain why I liked this so much, but it's great background viewing.

Apparently there are more shows in the series: http://decider.com/2016/08/05/slow-tv-now-on-netflix/

There was a guy mumbling incoherently in the background. So probably.

Thanksgiving last year some channel had a video of a train traveling through Alaska. Same sort of totally chill vibe.
Don’t believe everything you think.
