Abstract

Slow TV has emerged as a category for a series of long-running television shows that showcase Norway's landscapes and traditions conceived in 2009 as an experiment by NRK, Norway's public service television channel. In this interview, producer Thomas Hellum explains the concept, principles and working methods of the Minnut for Minutt program . Ultimately, he insists, the extreme length of many of the programs is a function of the principles and culture of public service television in Norway. Slow TV's slowness has little in common with Slow Cinema's slowness. Minutt for minutt is not about art, says Hellum; It's about telling a story.
