Feifei
Hi, Neil. 周末过得怎么样?去哪儿了?干了些什么?

Neil
Hi, Feifei! Actually, I stayed in and watched TV.

Feifei
Football?

Neil
No, I watched this marvellous programme from Norway.

Feifei
Oh, one of those police dramas? They are great!

Neil
Actually, believe it or not, the entire film was just the view from the front of a train, all the way from one city to another. It was seven hours’ long.

Feifei
片子演了七个小时?从头到尾没有人?没有剧情?只有火车车厢外沿路的风景?

Neil
Just the view from the train. It was such a relaxing journey. They call it Slow TV.

Feifei
Ahh, yes. I’ve heard of that. Wasn’t there one on a boat too? Isn’t it a bit boring?

Neil
Well, it’s not for everyone. But my life is so busy, I just like to slow down now and again.

Feifei
“Slow TV” 是近年来一个逐渐流行起来的概念。与传统电视节目相比,“slow TV” 电视节目节奏缓慢,播出时间长,内容以普通事件为主。观众可以跟随这类节目从容地欣赏美景,看原汁原味,未经剪辑,没有后期制作的电视节目。But I’m still not convinced. Anyway, let’s hear some more examples about this “slow TV”. It’s our phrase on Authentic Real English.

Examples
Michaela’s company specialises in making slow TV. She says business is great right now!

I recently discovered slow TV. My friends think it’s really dull, but I find it helps clear my head after a stressful day.

A: What are you watching? It looks just like a fireplace with a big piece of wood burning.
B: It is! Isn’t Slow TV fantastic? It takes about four hours for the wood to burn completely.

Feifei
这里是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。在这集节目中,我们给大家介绍 “slow TV” 这个新概念。So Neil, is this what you’ll be doing with your free time from now on? Watching slow TV?

Neil
No, I’ve got an even better idea for this weekend. You know that oak tree I planted?

Feifei
Err, yes?

Neil
I’m going to film it. And make my very own slow TV! Then you can watch my tree grow, any time you like.

Feifei
Honestly, Neil. I don’t think so.

Neil
Maybe this will be the next big thing in slow TV. I could call it… Slow Tree V. Get it?

Feifei
I think what you need is to take a long, slow walk outside. Then you can admire all the trees you like!

Neil
Just you wait, Feifei! This will be the slowest TV ever – oak trees take around 30 years to grow.

Feifei
Good luck, Neil. See you in 30 years. I’ll stick to police dramas in the meantime.

Both
Bye.
