Hi all,

I'm an enthusiast of what's become known as "slow tv", so I have made a little site dedicated to the genre.
I'd appreciate any feedback or criticism (constructive please!) of the site, and the contents.

If you have any links you'd like me add, please feel free to submit them.

Cheers,
Joseph

IMHO the best of the genre is the "Bergensbanen", an 8+ hr video of the train journey between Bergen and Oslo in Norway. This video is incredibly scenic, and I find it very relaxing. I've used it as the background during board game nights, and also if a kid can't sleep or is sick, i sit with them watching this and they soon nod off. :)

You can download the full video

Cheers,
Joseph

freitasm: Interesting stuff but that font is really hard to read...



Ok thanks for that :)
Have made the thing almost entirely on iPad (Safari) and tested on Chrome and Safari on the mac, but don't have other flavours of browsers to use. Will check other fonts, but they are all so boring.

Cheers!

Hehe very good! The kids & I just watched (some of) the train journey from Trail to Nelson (I woke them up for the exciting bits).

OK I have changed the font to good old Courier, away from the webfont (?) I was using. Chose a very bright colour too, so hopefully is easier to read. Tweaked sizes too.

Cheers!
