(Newser) – In its latest experiment with live coverage of mundane events, Norway's public broadcasting network plans to dedicate five hours of air-time to an attempt to break the knitting world record. The NRK network says the Nov. 1 broadcast will be preceded by a four-hour knitting documentary. "It's kind of ordinary TV but very slow, although they'll be knitting as fast as they can," says a producer. The Norwegians hope to break the non-stop knitting record of 4 hours 50 minutes. Live TV in Norway has already enticed viewers with minute-by-minute salmon fishing, a five-day broadcast from a cruise ship, and several hours of watching a fire burn itself out.
