Meanwhile, on Norwegian pubTV . . .

In a unique live broadcast that began Thursday (June 16), viewers of public television's NRK2 in Norway can watch all 8,040 minutes of the Hurtigruten MMS Nordnorge cruise ship and its roughly 670 passengers and crew as the vessel steams north along Norway's jagged coastline, reports Reuters. Coverage includes all on-board announcements and views from 11 cameras focusing on fjords, boat traffic around the ship, officers on the bridge and passengers strolling the decks. "It is slow, it is very slow," said Rune Moeklebust, the project manager for the show. Moeklebust said 1.3 million of Norway's 4.9 million residents at least were "stopping by" NRK2 between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. on the first day.
