The Norwegian broadcaster NRK recently made a 7 hour program showing every minute of the scenic train ride between Bergen on the Norwegian west coast, crossing the mountains to the capital of Oslo. The entire program is available under Creative Commons license and can be downloaded using Bittorrent.

The video is coded in a 720p, 1280×720 version and the 7 hours gives it a 22 GB file. That will be quite a download and hopefully there will be many seeders by now. I haven’t downloaded it yet though. If the size is prohibitive, you can check out the 10 minute preview clip at the bottom of the page.

    Thanks to the CC-license provided with the video from NRK, I’ve made a time-laps video of it that is only 7 minutes and 14 seconds long. You can watch it on my blog:

    thanks for the link frank. 7 minutes is better that 7 hours 🙂
