Norwegian public television, NRK, plans to broadcast a burning fireplace for 12 hours on Friday evenings.

“We’ll talk about the very nerdy subjects like burning, slicing and stacking the wood, but we’ll also have cultural segments with music and poems,” Rune Moeklebust, a producer for state broadcaster NRK.”It will be very SLOW but noble television.”

“People in Norway have a spiritual relationship with fire,” Moeklebust said. “Fire is the reason we’re here, if there was no firewood, we couldn’t live in Norway, we’d freeze.”
