Like many Norwegians, Lord Bassington-Bassington has become noticeably more patriotic since the terrible events of this summer.
So in order to increase the understanding and appreciation of Norwegian culture throughout the world, and perhaps increase support for Norwegian-style politics in other countries, His Lordship would like to call his readers' attention this classic documentary.
While an very insightful introduction to Norwegian culture, parts of this documentary might be a bit outdated. For example, the Soviet Union has a different name these days. And ski technology has taken a few leaps in later years.
Part 2 and part 3 also come recommended.
And what better way to illustrate this little ode to Norwegian culture than by a picture of Gustav Beowulf of Lulubelle in a fit of patriotic fervour?
