Last year, Norwegian broadcaster NRK made a 7.5 hour documentary following the train from Bergen to Oslo, for every minute. Here's the sequel
: a 27 minute documentary following the new light rail train
in Bergen, minute by minute through 9,8 kilometers.According to NRK,
(in English here
, via Google Translate) more than 400000 viewers saw this documentary, beating the Norwegian ratings for several World Cup
The video is distributed with a CC license, and NRK has posted a link
to the official torrent.
(Spoiler: the train almost hits a car at 9:40.)
Bonus link: "Electric Boogie
", a recent commercial for Norwegian public utility Statnett, who's delivering parts of the electricity used by the trains.
