In a Slow TV Christmas special, a traditional reindeer sleigh is rigged with a fixed camera for a magical journey across the frozen wilderness of the Arctic. Following the path of an ancient postal route, the ride captures the traditional world of the Sami people who are indigenous to northern Scandinavia and for whom reindeer herding remains a way of life. Filmed in Karasjok, Norway - 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle - this journey takes us through breathtaking scenery not normally glimpsed by anyone other than the Sami. Deliberately unhurried, the rhythmic pace of the reindeer guides us along an epic two-hour trip over undulating snowy hills, through birch forests, across frozen lakes and past traditional Sami encampments. Facts about the reindeer, natural history, Sami culture and Arctic climate are delivered by graphics and archive stills embedded into the passing landscape. With no commentary, music or presenter - just the crunching of snow and the soft tinkle of a reindeer bell, this hypnotic sleigh ride is an enchanting experience to put everyone in the Christmas spirit.
Not really my thing - may be good as wallpaper or backing for an event etc - I guess it does what it says - a sleigh ride - not much else really!
