So far on this blog I have managed to feature European television from Norway, Belgium, France, Denmark, Switzerland, and the UK. Which considering how little Australian content is on this site, shows just how lazy I am, and just how proactive and generous my readers are (thanks again!).
Well we now have another European country we can add to that list: Sweden, thanks to Simon who has supplied me these videos from SVT (thats Sveriges Television) the license fee funded national broadcaster of everyones favorite high tax paying country.
I’ve always been fascinated by Sweden and its literally at the top of my “next holiday” list. I don’t know what my attraction is, maybe its the Saab’s, maybe its the The Knife, whatever it is I can’t wait to hopefully visit for myself sometime soon.
Enough about my travel plans though, these videos are a mix of promos, idents and programming from SVT1 and SVT2, for a run down of whats in each video…
The first video is from SVT1 and contains promos and idents, as well as the start of the main news program Rapport and an ident for SVT drama.
Video number three starts with another news program (which seems to have some story about Saab’s in the opening), along with various idents and a promo for the SVT HD service.
You’ll notice throughout these videos, that like the Norwegians the Swedish seem to enjoy using the live talking head continuity announcers.
– Thanks again to Simon for all the videos, cheers!
