Train ride across Norway
« on: January 14, 2014, 09:28:37 PM »

You might remember this thread http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php?topic=12228.msg230481#msg230481 regarding a 12 hour Norwegian TV programme showing wood burning and related features.

I recently discovered that they've done another similar long broadcast, this time a 7 1/4 hour train ride across Norway, from Bergen on the Norwegian west coast, crossing the mountains to the capital of Oslo. The programme, called Bergensbanen is available for legal international download, though please note you'll need a bittorrent client and it's either 22Gb or 246Gb, depending on which quality you choose!  ???

I downloaded the smaller one, and the quality is still very impressive.  The views are also quite stunning, though it seems to be realtime, and thus passing through tunnels can be rather dull to watch  ;D

Here's the Norwegian broadcaster NRK's web site to tell you about it, in English, along with download links :

Fascinating :)   I think I'll download it when I've got a few free minutes.
