Sweden Has an Odd Reality TV ShowApril 19, 2019 4:08pm

The genre is called "slow TV," for good reason. Viewers in Sweden currently have the ability to watch live cams of a river in the hope that elk will be crossing, reports Radio Sweden.

Broadcaster SVT has begun airing 24/7 footage of the Angermanalven river in Angermanland, site of an annual spring elk crossing for thousands of years. The Great Elk Trek wraps up May 2, making for 450 hours of total viewing, per the Local.

Producers also will occasionally air highlight reels. See for yourself here. (Other slow-TV shows were big hits in Norway, including live knitting, a burning fire, and a ferry ride.)
