Nice and S l o w & Easy does it !
The current enthusiastic embracing of “S L O W TV” by the England’s populous was highlighted when 800,000 tuned in to watch a 2hr , 38 mile journey aboard the Northern Dalesman through the Yorkshire Dales on a Sunday evening. This is 1 in 60 and 20% of those over age 65.
This follows an amazing response to recent films of a similar nature ” Sleigh Ride ” made following a Simi Herder walking with a Reindeer sleigh across the Arctic Circle. Later a 2 hour canal boat journey was filmed in real time on the Avon-Kennet Canal . There is no commentary to these films, nor music in the background ,just the eerie near silence of the scene drifting by.
