"You've heard about slow food. Now here's slow ... TV? In this very
funny talk, Norwegian television producer Thomas Hellum shares how he
and his team began to broadcast long, boring events, often live -- and
found a rapt audience. Shows include a 7-hour train journey, an 18-hour
fishing expedition and a 5.5-day ferry voyage along the coast of Norway.
The results are both beautiful and fascinating. Really."
