Following on from the popular film of a complete train journey over the Bergensbanen from Bergen to Oslo Sentrum, filmed from the engine driver seat, NRK have gone one better. They are televising the complete Hurtigruten journey from Bergen to Kirkenes. This will take one hundred and thirty-four hours instead of the mere seven hours of the Bergensbanen film.

I think you can watch the Hurtigruten trip from outside of Norway. If you are interested, or your paint has dried, try clicking here

The Hurtigruten started as a high speed postal service but is now considered to be one of the most beautiful sea cruises in the world.

Update: apparently the Hurtigruten live broadcast is the worlds longest TV program. For those of you that want to watch it again and again, the broadcast can be downloaded in parts as a Bittorrent. Even better, the material has been released under a Creative Commons licence which gives you a lot of freedom to use the material yourself.
