Feifei
Hi, Neil. 週末過得怎麼樣?去哪兒了?幹了些什麼?

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
片子演了七個小時?從頭到尾沒有人?沒有劇情?只有火車車廂外沿路的風景?

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」 是近年來一個逐漸流行起來的概念。與傳統電視節目相比,「slow TV」 電視節目節奏緩慢,播出時間長,內容以普通事件為主。觀眾可以跟隨這類節目從容地欣賞美景,看原汁原味,未經剪輯,沒有後期製作的電視節目。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
這裡是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。在這集節目中,我們給大家介紹 「slow TV」 這個新概念。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.
