Between the 14th and 16th of October, TV4 Play goes live from the moose hunt in Sweden. During these days local reporters follow several hunting parties in their efforts to bring down moose. #Älgjakten will be available for free at TV4 Play and at tv4.se.
In Sweden there are nearly 300,000 hunters of which approximately 270,000 hunt moose. In the live broadcast #Älgjakten, viewers follow and experience the excitement Swedish hunters get every year. In a three-day broadcast Swedish nature is shown in autumn colors with interviews, hunting passes and hopefully moose.
"Slow TV" is a program format in which viewers can follow a course of events for a long time. The previously most talked about slow TV-format is the Norwegian success "Hurtigruten", where viewers could follow a cruiser around Norwegian fjords for several days. This summer TV4 did a webcast during five days called “TV4 Båten” - a journey on a canal boat along the Swedish river Göta kanal.
- TV4 Båten widely exceeded our expectations. We received tremendously positive feedback from our viewers. Now we will follow one of the most classic Swedish phenomena of nature; the moose hunt, says Mia Lindqvist program director at Nyhetsbolaget producing #Älgjakten.
