Rune Møklebust, the mastermind of NRK's Slow TV concept, warned The Local last week that Slow TV is "a difficult thing to joke with" and that our planned April Fools' story about a Slow TV programme on snow melting was "not that far-fetched".
"You can write whatever you want on April 1st, but Slow TV is a difficult thing to joke with" he wrote. "Considering what we actually have done, a 200-hour snow-melting is not that far-fetched." 
 
He said that Nrkbeta.no, the channel's new media laboratory, did an April 1st hoax a couple of years ago about the channel planning to film Norway's longest fjord, under water, live.
 
This, he said "is actually is on the real list."
