Olga Khazan on the strange trend in Norway dubbed “Slow TV”:

The hosts of National Firewood Night, a 12-hour broadcast of logs being cut and then burned, invited viewers to submit advice via Facebook on how to position the wood. “I couldn’t go to bed because I was so excited,” one commenter wrote on the Web site of Dagbladet, a Norwegian newspaper. “When will they add new logs?”

I call it strange, yet I’m sure plenty of households in the rest of the world are watching a looping image of a crackling fireplace on their televisions today.

We need more of this. Too much of our television asks for a lot of our attention over a short period. More of the opposite would be better.

When will they add new logs?

    Memories of similar slow-TV when we were on analogue satellite and could get German programming. Train journeys, logs...
