Norway TV on tenterhooks, impending rockslide

HELSINKI (AP) — Norway, which provided TV viewers with five hours of knitting live, showing a fire burning itself out and minute-by-minute salmon fishing, has found a new attraction — a rockslide on a mountain.

But no one knows when it will happen.

For days, local media have focused webcams on the isolated, rubbly mountainside of Mannen in western Norway. National broadcaster NRK is streaming it live on its website.

Last week, 11 people were evacuated from the area, now declared a no-go zone.

Webcams cannot guarantee a good show. It might happen at night, and daytime viewing could be hampered by thick rain and mist.

As darkness fell on Tuesday, a tiny rockslide lasting 15 seconds was the big news of the day.
