Since the beginning of March, Norwegian television network NRK has been broadcasting “Piip-Show”, a 24/7 online stream that follows the lives of “a short tempered nuthatch, a blue tit with the memory of a gold fish, a happy-go-lucky great tit, and a depressed bullfinch.”

This is the same station that aired seven-hour train rides, minute-by-minute knitting, and other “slow TV” experiments that have become a Norwegian specialty.
