30-hour Interview

Norway's VGTV is conducting (or probably has by now conducted) a 30-hour interview with author/chess-player/historian/politician Hans Olav Lahlum, aiming to set a record for the longest interview ever. The station is hoping that people will really start tuning in as the interviewer and interviewee grow progressively more sleep-deprived. Because the Norwegians, you see, are big fans of "Slow TV." Previous hits have included a documentary on firewood and a 134-hour live broadcast of a boat trip. [Wall Street Journal, VGTV]
