    Bloo, no ads.

    NRK is financed with a license, like the BBC.

    Very cool. And the show sounds very interesting, too bad I don’t speak Norwegian.

    Great idea. the news is supposed to be free anyway.

    Thanks BoingBoing.

    I never thought that speaking Norwegian would help me enjoy a link from BoingBoing. How convenient.

    This is beautiful. I have seen three episodes now and I can’t wait for more. Everyone should know that you don’t need to understand the words; you’ll get it. It’s deeper than “Survivorman”.

    This is the second best thing from Scandinavia after The Hives.

    Jennee, I guess there won’t be made English subtitles until the show is picked up by an English-language broadcaster (it might have been fansubbed of course).

    So, It would be cool if those of you who’d like to see it subtitled contacted other broadcasters. That way we could show that making content availbale drives interest.

    Reminds me of the old Conan gag: “IT’S IN SPANISH!”

    Just curious – are there ads?

    English subtitles (fansubs derived from the original Norwegian subs) for all 8 episodes of the series “Nordkalotten 365″ are available here:

    Lars Monsen is the most awesome person to ever grace this earth. This is great news indeed.

    As opposed to the BBC who seem to want the fewest possible number of people to access their online shows.
