The world’s most boring television … and why it’s hilariously addictive

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Is it possible that there is a better recipe for entertainment than fast paced TV, quick editing and reality shows that are filled with staged drama? What if you took it to the other extreme? In this talk Hellum tells the history of slow-TV, from a courageous decision to air a unedited train ride where nothing happens…. to a five and a half day journey with a Coastal ship. And the result? Staggering! Learn more from Thomas in this humorous talk about TV habits
