    Further info on the transmission from Bergen is to be found here: http://spilleglede.no/13+timer+direkte-tv+fra+NM.b7C_wBfWXl.ips

    The link at the bottom of this page should lead directly to the main event. In the days leading up to the competition there will be some trial-broadcasts here. For anybody interested in checking out sound- and picture quality...this is the place to go :)

    For the enthusiasts it is perhaps worth mentioning that part of the broadcast will include the Gala concert featuring Black Dyke. In all there will be 13 hours of music-making, commencing at 8.45 local time (GMT +1?????).

    The production will include elite-section (own-choice, the set-piece on friday will not be covered it seems) and 1st section (own choice). Reportedly there should be quite a lot to listen to.

    Elite section - complete list (confirmed by NMF):
    1. Spiriti (Doss)
    2. Seid (Aagaard-Nilsen)
    3. Vocalise, fanfare and rondo (Peterson)

    Having read the draw for the competition, i'm loving the Norwegian word for what i can only assume means end or finish!

    Fantastic idea - just a shame that after watching 30 seconds of video everything freezes - still got audio but no visuals. Then after a while everything just goes off and replays the last 20 seconds over and over. Great idea but gets very annoying and tedious after a while with so many problems

    agreed - especially when it goes for good just as they are about to announce the winner of the elite section between Eikanger and Manger. Anybody any idea who won?
