Norway broadcaster NRK to show 12 hours of knitting, sheep-shearing in ‘slow TV’ broadcast

Hoping to take slow TV to a new level, Norway’s public broadcaster will air 12 hours of knitting from Friday night, complete with needle tips and a how-to on knitting a cover for a Harley Davidson motorbike.
Broadcaster NRK, a veteran in quirky programming, will also feature an attempt to break a world sheep-shearing record currently held by an Australian shearing group…

…Then from midnight, a team of eight will attempt to break the world record for shearing a sheep and making a sweater from its wool.
The current record for the back to back challenge — from the back of a sheep to the back of a person – stands at four hours and 51 minutes, held by the Merriwa Jumbucks from New South Wales.
